Friends of African American Art


The Friends of African American Art Collectors Circle (FAAA) is devoted to advancing the presence and profile of African American art within the Museum and in the community.  Through in-depth seminars, private receptions, guided tours, and national and international travel, the Friends of African American Art seek to educate a new generation of art connoisseurs.  If you are interested in expanding your knowledge of African American art of the past and present, we invite you to take advantage of these up-close and personal experiences with curators, scholars, artists, and collectors by becoming a member of the Friends of African American Art.
