Latin Maecenas


Patron Groups - Latin Maecenas

Learn more about the exciting field of Latin American art through informal lectures, seminars, and visits to some of the most prominent private collections in Houston and abroad. Members have the opportunity to interact with important contemporary Latin American and Latino artists; travel internationally with curators; and learn how to recognize valuable opportunities in this rapidly expanding market. Funds raised by the group support the acquisition of Latin American artworks for the Museum’s collection. Latin Maecenas members are invited to the biennial Latin American Experience Gala, which brings the international Latin American art community to Houston.

Past program highlights include:

  • Talk with Colombian artist Leyla Cárdenas, followed by a reception at a collector’s home
  • Exclusive Latin Maecenas trip to Los Angeles for the opening of Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA, an exploration of Latin American and Latino art in dialogue with Los Angeles and Southern California
  • Artist talk with Uruguayan artist Marco Maggi, followed by a reception at a collector’s home

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.
