The Collectors’ Circle is a members’ organization of the Wheelwright Museum whose mission is to fund acquisitions for the permanent collections. Since its founding in 1999, the Collectors’ Circle has helped the Museum make several of the most significant acquisitions in its history. As a Collectors’ Circle member you will receive invitations to attend exclusive events at artists’ studios, collectors’ homes, and some of Santa Fe’s premier galleries. Enjoy the fellowship of others for whom Native American art is a passion, while training your eye and deepening your understanding.

Membership in the Collectors’ Circle costs $250.00 per individual or $500.00 per couple, all of which is tax deductible. One hundred percent of membership dues go directly to the Wheelwright Museum’s acquisitions fund. (Must have an existing membership with the museum to join the Collectors’ Circle.)
