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.
