Why Join Friends of Art at the Davis
When you join Friends of Art at the Davis, you join an extraordinary legacy of more than 50 years of generous giving in support of the arts at Wellesley College. Your Friends of Art Membership directly supports the Davis Museum—providing funds for exceptional exhibitions and acquisitions, unique internship and employment opportunities to Wellesley students, arts programs for the greater Wellesley College community, and more!

In return, Friends of Art Members receive a variety of benefits based on their giving level, like invitations to local chapter and national in-person and virtual events, reciprocal museum admission, travel opportunities, and much more.

The Davis has given me the chance to explore my interest in art and gain the skills that I need to succeed in the art world. It was wonderful to learn from other students in DMSAC (Davis Museum Student Advisory Committee) and to work with the museum's curators. Additionally, my summer internship at the Davis has helped me to network with other museum professionals and gain direct experience with developing an exhibition. It's a unique opportunity to work directly in museums as an undergraduate, and I'm incredibly grateful for my time at the Davis.
