Director's Circle Membership

The Director's Circle represents a core membership group to the Hood Museum of Art.

Director's Circle

For several decades, the Lathrop Fellows represented a core group of Hood patrons. In January 2019, we celebrated the opening of our renovated and expanded facility and the renaming of the group of key supporters. 

The Director's Circle provides exclusive access for all members, including incredible travel opportunities. Join the Director's Circle group today and be part of moving the Hood forward.

Any donor of $2,500 or more will receive all of the following benefits:

  • A subscription to the Hood Quarterly magazine;
  • Recognition as a Director's Circle–level supporter in the Hood Quarterly once per year;
  • A monthly Hood Happenings e-newsletter;
  • An invitation to participate in exclusive art-focused travel opportunities with the Hood Museum's director and curators;
  • Invitations to Director's Circle–only events at the Hood Museum of Art; and
  • A customized tour of a Hood Museum exhibition with a curator for up to six people, by appointment.
