William Cullen Bryant Fellows

The William Cullen Bryant Fellows brings together collectors, supporters, scholars, and aficionados of historical American and Latin American painting, sculpture, works on paper, and decorative arts. Annual dues support the broad program of scholarship of The American Wing, and members receive a copy of all publications produced with their funds.

Annual activities include visits to important public and private collections, exclusive curatorial tours of The Met exhibitions, and a special two-day fall program. In addition, Bryant Fellows receive complimentary membership to the Friends of The American Wing and have opportunities to travel annually outside of New York with curators.

Annual dues: $12,000 ($10,604 is tax deductible)
