Barrett Art Center Collectors' Circle

About the Collectors' Circle 

Barrett connects artists and art enthusiasts with unique opportunities to interact with fellow artists, museum professionals, and collectors in events curated to heighten appreciation of  art, the creative process, and public and private collecting practices.  Participants in the CC programs are invited to "collect" unique experiences that enhance their experience of visual art.
