Affiliate Groups

Are you already a Member? Increase your involvement by joining one of our specialized interest groups. These groups bring together people with a shared interest in a particular aspect of art to learn, socialize, and support the Museum.

Three groups support the Museum through fundraising and volunteer efforts, including Arizona Costume Institute, Friends of Contemporary Art*, and Men’s Arts Council. The support groups contribute an average of 65,000 volunteer hours each year, and raise an average of 4% of the Museum’s operating budget, in addition to funding for art acquisitions.
