EVERY GREAT CLASSIC TELLS A STORY. THIS IS OURS.
From springtime in Paris to a predilection for all things Italian, Friends of European Art is a place for those who treasure the art, culture, and history of Europe. As a support organization of the Phoenix Art Museum, we help fund exhibitions, acquisitions, and educational opportunities that illuminate European art. We have been honored to have played a vital role in the defining moments of both the Museum and its extensive collection.
What’s more, our members form lasting friendships as they travel, dine, and learn together at preview parties, lectures, and private dinners. Members forge new relationships with those who share their passions, and their love of the classical, the baroque, the distinctly European.
Who We Are
Founded in 1997, Friends of European Art is an active group of people that promotes and inspires enthusiasm for and interest in European art. FEA supports Phoenix Art Museum’s collection through funding acquisitions, exhibitions, and educational programs in European art.
What We Do
FEA members sponsor internationally renowned speakers for public lectures in Whiteman Hall and salons in private homes of members and collectors. FEA has traveled abroad to France, Germany, Italy, and Russia. Our domestic trips have taken us to New York City, Washington DC, Chicago, Houston, and San Francisco.
