Friends of European Sculpture and Decorative Arts

The Friends of European Sculpture and Decorative Arts is a group of enthusiasts of the decorative arts, design, and sculpture. They love art objects and learning about the ways they were made, how they were used, and where they come from. The Friends of ESDA gather several times a year for curator-led events, including object-based study seminars, behind-the-scenes tours, exhibition previews, and opening receptions.

Annual dues (individual): $2,000 ($1,708 is tax deductible)

Annual dues (for two): $4,000 ($3,708 is tax deductible)
