Gifts of Art

150 Years of Giving

Soon after the 澳门六合彩开奖现场直播 opened in 1870, Bostonians donated art to build the foundation of the Museum鈥檚 encyclopedic collection. These donors were visionaries who wished to share art with the public by placing their treasured collections in the care of the 澳门六合彩开奖现场直播. Since then, generous donors have contributed to the Museum鈥檚 growing collection, including transformative gifts in recent years.

This tradition of generosity continues with you. Gifts of art and funds for the purchase of art allow the Museum to continue to build and enhance a world-renowned collection鈥攅nriching our understanding of the past and revealing the unfolding story of the present. Donating art or funds to purchase art makes you eligible for recognition in the Denman Waldo Ross Society.
