Young Friends Acquisition Council

The Young Friends Acquisition Council is a unique opportunity reserved for Young Friends Patron members to further engage their interests in collecting and the current art market through conversations with curators and art professionals. The council also has the responsibility of managing and promoting the Young Friends Acquisition Fund.

Through the Young Friends Acquisition Fund, the Council is able to select and purchase significant work for the Museum Collection. Other opportunities for the group include special events with Museum leadership and visiting artists, and VIP passes for local and national art fairs such as Art Basel Miami Beach, Frieze New York, Palm Beach Modern and Contemporary, The Armory Show, and TEFAF (The European Fine Art Fair) New York.
