WAYS TO BE PART OF ALBERTINA
"Works of art are not created or kept to cultivate a cultural discipline, but to nourish the soul with the senses. And museums are constructed to provide as much of this nourishment as possible."
Accompany us into the future
Albertina's history is a history of art friends and sponsors.
Founded in 1771 in the spirit of enlightenment by Duke Albert of Saxe-Teschen and expanded by his successors with connoisseurship and passion, it is today, as well as then, one of the most important graphical art collections in the world.
THE PATRON CIRCLE
As a member of the Patron Circle, you help the museum fulfil its main tasks. The Albertina provides an exclusive location to meet people with similar artistic and cultural interests.
Sponsors contribute considerably to the realisation of an exhibition, financing the transport and insuring of works of art, lending fees, the publishing of publications and the acquisition of new works of art for the Albertina collection.
Partners accompany the Albertina through exhibition programs and special projects for a period of at least three years.
Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life. (Pablo Picasso)
