About

Whether you are a student, scholar, museum professional, collector, or art enthusiast, you will enjoy the Old Masters Society's programs, trips, and social events. Old Masters Society programming includes exhibition previews, receptions, dinner and luncheon lectures by distinguished scholars, and trips to museums and private collections both in the United States and abroad. Members are also treated to exclusive behind-the-scenes tours and unique insights from Art Institute curators.

Membership in the Old Masters Society helps to support the collection and activities of the Department of European Painting and Sculpture. The OMS plays an important role in the Art Institute community through contributions towards acquisitions, research, publications, exhibitions, and lectures that foster an understanding of the great art of the past and an appreciation of collecting.
