Members of MAM's Contemporary Collectors Circle are invited to an evening at MAM on Wednesday, July 25 at 5:30 p.m. Enjoy champagne and hors d'oeuvres while visiting the exhibition The Shape of Things for the annual selection and vote to purchase a new acquisition for the MAM Collection. Learn more.

Widening the Circle, Growing MAM’s Collection
CCC membership is 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. 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 call (406) 728-0447.
