The Collection Society is an independent group dedicated to growing the Museum’s Permanent Collection and encouraging collecting at all levels. Members gain insiders’ and curator’s perspectives on the exciting and ever-changing world of art through visits to museums, galleries, art fairs, artists’ studios, and collectors’ homes, etc. The group hosts about three events annually for the Society, including acquisitions meeting(s). Groups like this are essential elements of every museum of significance. Annual dues ($500 per household, minimum) are allocated in their entirety to the Museum’s Acquisitions Fund to support the purchase of artwork and are fully tax deductible. From time to time, there may be modest event fees to cover costs. To join, simply send a check marked “Collection Society” or call in with your credit card information.

For more information on the Collection Society, contact Peg Keller, Chair of the Collection Society, or Anke Van Wagenberg, Curator, at 410-822-2787 or at
