Widening the Circle, Growing MAM’s Collection
CCC membership is open to the following MAM members and patrons:
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. 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.
The CCC was formed in 2007 and in that time CCC membership dues have helped the museum acquire an impressive 13 artworks for MAM’s collection and host dozens of unique programs related to collecting. Learn more about some of these artworks through MAM's Collection database.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
