The Apollo Circle is a special Membership group for young supporters of the Metropolitan Museum. Named after the Greek god of youth, the arts, culture, and music, The Apollo Circle engages its Members in a variety of educational and social activities and provides incomparable insights into the Museum's collections and exhibitions. Proceeds support The Apollo Circle Fund for Art Conservation.
The Apollo Circle Patrons, an upper level of The Apollo Circle, is an opportunity for Members to develop a closer association with the Museum through an extended schedule of more intimate programming.
Apollo Circle Chairs: Genevieve Kinney, Alejandro Santo Domingo, and Laura Stone
