The FAC collecting mission focuses on art produced in the Americas. We are committed to celebrating the existing quality of the collection, while expanding and strengthening our collections in all areas.
The permanent collection is continually expanding, largely due to generous gifts from dedicated supporters. Through a thoughtful selection process, only works that fit into the scope of the existing collection and that are highly exhibitable are accepted.
The Debutante Ball Committee first began contributing annually to the FAC’s Permanent Collection acquisition fund in 1967, and since then, have donated over half a million dollars! Their generosity has resulted in the purchase of many iconic FAC works.
