Global Council

The Global Council is the Studio Museum’s premier invite-only Patron Group. These dedicated and passionate art lovers, philanthropists, and collectors share an interest in engaging with Black art and culture within the United States and across the globe. 

Through various exclusive events with Museum leadership, Global Council supporters become deeply involved in the Studio Museum community, build relationships with others who have a passion for art and collecting, and play a vital role in sustaining and advancing the Museum’s mission. 

The Global Council is invited to events year-round, such as private collection visits, gallery tours, access to VIP openings, and early access to art fairs. The Global Council also has the rare opportunity to travel with the Studio Museum on an annual trip. Previous trips have offered preview passes to the Venice Biennale, Prospect.5 in New Orleans, private tours of the Tate Modern, and intimate access to some of the world’s leading Black artists.
