Friends of CCS Galleries provide crucial funding that directly supports exhibitions in our galleries; expands student opportunities in curatorial practice and other specialized activities; supports the Woodward Lecture Series and other public programs; and helps us to deepen our engagement with the community and strengthen CCS’s impact as a major cultural anchor.
