Support Public Art Fund

Director’s Circle

The Director’s Circle is a network of collectors and philanthropists who share a passion for Public Art Fund’s mission, providing vital support for our work through their annual dues. Members of the Director’s Circle receive behind-the-scenes access to our exhibitions and participate in meaningful exchanges about art and culture with Public Art Fund curators and artists through exclusive studio visits, private collections tours, and other special events. 

Recent events include a walkthrough of The Hive at Moynihan Train Hall with Elmgreen & Dragset; studio visits with Fred Eversley, Claudia Weise and Hugh Hayden; and Kusama: Cosmic Nature at the New York Botanical Gardens and Gillian Wearing: Wearing Masks at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum.
