Museum Collector's Council logo

The Museum Collectors Council (MCC) is an SBMA support group with the goal of providing both the novice and advanced collector opportunities to gain greater knowledge and insight into the many areas of art collecting.

MCC members enjoy the benefit of visiting private art collections in Santa Barbara homes or other art venues. These Conversations with a Collector events are chosen by the MCC steering committee on the basis of collection size and quality and are held four to six times per year. In addition to a Museum membership at the Gallery Patron level, the cost of a MCC annual membership is $75 per couple.


For more information or to join, or if you are interested in hosting a Conversation, contact Katie Pearson at 805.884.6427 or at
