The Artistic Director’s Circle is a group of like-minded art lovers who commit to an annual donation of $1,000 or more to benefit CMA’s free Community Programs. Members receive 1 VIP ticket to CMA’s annual Gala, invitations to 2 specially-organized events each year, VIP invitations to CMA’s exhibition openings, and free VIP passes to several NYC art fairs.
Enjoy visits to artists’ studios, meet up for art fairs and gallery openings, and visit collector’s homes to view significant collections! Each year, CMA’s Curator and Artistic Director arranges special visits for Artistic Director’s Circle members that provide privileged access to the New York City art world.
