Avant Garde Wants YOU!


Want more than a standard membership but not ready to join the board? Consider Avant Garde, and open yourself up to a world of hip events and fun cultural experiences with people who love art as much as you do. Avant Garde is MCASD’s newest membership group created especially for young collectors and art enthusiasts 25- to 40-something.
