Widening the Circle, Growing MAM’s Collection

The CCC was formed 10 years ago and in that time CCC membership dues have helped the museum purchase an impressive 11 artworks to MAM’s collection and host dozens of programs related to collecting. In order to garner new momentum, MAM is reshaping the CCC to broaden the membership, make the CCC more nimble and responsive to collecting opportunities, and adopt an ‘open guest policy’ at CCC events.

CCC membership is now open to the following MAM members and patrons:

  • MAM donors at the Leader Circle level—$1,000 and above.
  • Donors to MAM’s collection and legacy donors.
  • MAM members who opt in with a $100 per person annual contribution in addition to annual museum membership.

MAM’s goals with the CCC are twofold: first, to make acquisitions to MAM’s collection that support artists and strategically strengthen the collection, and, second, to offer three to four enriching events each year that take members to collectors’ homes, artists’ studios, and to exciting art destinations. CCC dues will be used for acquisitions, events, and to administer the group. Potential acquisitions will be presented to the group as the occasion arises, with the opportunity for members to contribute toward the purchases as a tax-deductible donation.

For more information about becoming a CCC member or to learn about exciting CCC opportunities on the horizon, please contact Development Director Cassie Strauss at (406) 728-0447 or email
