The Young Friends
Acquisition Council  

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

The Young Friends Acquisition Fund recently supported the growth of the Museum’s Collection with the purchase of Mine, 2007 by Arturo Herrera. This is an important acquisition for the Museum as it is a significant addition to the Norton’s collection of works on paper.
