Friends of Indian and Islamic Art is a group of Art Institute of Chicago members interested in supporting works of art from India, Southeast Asia, the Himalayas, and the Islamic world.
Friends of Indian and Islamic Art's primary purpose is to enable the purchase of artworks of the highest quality. Group members' dues are used to make these acquisitions, and once a year members meet to vote on which objects proposed by the curator will join the collection (subject to approval by the Board of Trustees).
Friends of Indian and Islamic Art members are invited to view private collections, attend luncheon lectures and discussions, and participate in other events and opportunities available exclusively to its members.
