Giving Societies

The Fellows

The Fellows of Carnegie Museum of Art are a group of art lovers and aficionados whose tax-deductible gifts provide funds to further the fascinating exhibitions and educational programs of CMOA. Fellows enjoy private exhibition previews with the exhibition curators; annual trips to museums in other cities; visits to the homes of prominent collectors; and lectures by artists, scholars, and other experts.

Fellows are asked to make a $1,500 or more annual gift, in additional to maintaining a Patron Circle membership with a gift of $1,895 or greater.

Become part of The Fellows.


The Portrait Society

Portrait Society members help support The Warhol’s contemporary exhibition programs, education initiatives, and general operating fund. The group gains behind-the-scenes access to noteworthy exhibitions, art fairs, events, and openings that The Warhol hosts each year.

In keeping with Andrew Carnegie’s ambition to provide intellectual and cultural access to the arts and sciences regardless of social status, The Warhol serves more than 12,000 youth through collaborative outreach and in-museum education programs and engages more than 30,000 total participants in its education programs annually. We need your support to help The Warhol continue this legacy through its community outreach and engagement.

The Portrait Society is open to Carnegie Museums of Pittsburgh Patron-level members for an additional $1,500 gift annually.
