Friends of New Art (FONA)

Friends of New Art members gather throughout the year to stay informed and share enthusiasm about the contemporary art scene. Events include visits to private collections and artist studios, panels, and private tours of relevant Fine Arts Museums exhibitions. Dues are $1,000 a year and support purchases of contemporary art for the Fine Arts Museums. Our members’ support has enabled the Museums to develop and refine its contemporary art collection. In past years, generous contributions have made possible the purchase of Cornelia Parker’s Anti-Mass, Jay DeFeo’s Mountain No 2, James Turrell’s Three Gems, Bruce Nauman’s Double Poke in the Eye II and Kiki Smith’s Near.
