Art + Paper


Patron Groups - Art + Paper

Art + Paper fosters a deeper appreciation for the graphic arts and encourages the understanding and collecting of works on paper through a series of exciting events with artists, collectors, curators, conservators, and other experts. Membership dues directly support the prints and drawings department, and the membership year culminates as the curatorial staff presents a selection of objects to consider for accession by the group.

Past program highlights include:

  • Special viewing and conversation at McClain Gallery about the exhibition Imagining Backwards: Seven Decades of Picasso Master Prints
  • Exclusive monotype printmaking demonstration with artists John Alexander and Karin Broker at Rice University’s Printmaking Studio
  • Private reception and conversation at Moody Gallery with artist Jerry Jeanmard

Parking in the Museum’s two garages is complimentary during Patron Group events! Members of Patron Groups also enjoy the discounted MFAH member rate when parking during regular Museum visits. Learn more about parking.
