Friends of the Mint sponsors programs about art in all its many forms. Lectures are designed to engage audiences and enhance appreciation of the arts. Speakers are chosen for their in-depth knowledge of a program topic, relationship to Mint Museum exhibitions and timeliness of arts related subject matter. Our affiliate shares the Mint’s commitment to Learning and Engagement.

We welcome new members! Membership dues finance the programs – it’s that simple!
