Collect: Collectors & Enthusiasts of Contemporary Art

If it’s happening in the art world today, we’re talking about it in Collect. Join to learn all about collecting contemporary art and navigating the art market. Learn from trendsetters, leading experts, and artists about appreciating, acquiring, and living with the art of our time.

Collect members hear from the best and the brightest in the contemporary art world. Enjoy exclusive conversations with curators, artists, and gallerists, and celebrate at the year-end party—events that are held virtually and in person. Membership contributions to Collect support the group’s activities and contemporary art at the museum.

Erica F. Battle, John Alchin and Hal Marryatt Associate Curator of Contemporary Art, provides curatorial oversight for Collect.
