THE CROWN SOCIETY TRAVEL PROGRAM

ART ADVENTURES IN STYLE

The Crown Society Travel Program offers our most generous and loyal Crown members domestic and international art-infused experiences that delight, enrich, and inspire even the most experienced traveler. Lead by Mint curators, President and CEO Todd A. Herman, PhD, and specialist guides, every trip through the Crown Society Travel Program elevates and enriches your connection to the creative world.

Go from art fairs and galleries to gardens and palazzos, while also getting exclusive access to private collections, behind-the-scenes tours and studio visits — only made possible through key relationships forged over the Mint’s 85 years.  Participants stay in luxe accommodations and enjoy fine wine and delectable cuisine.

Develop the kind of cultural literacy and understanding made possible through thoughtful travel — all while forging friendships and having fun. Consider the extraordinary destinations we’ll be visiting over 2021-2022.
