COMPASS is a group of Leadership Level Members with an interest in education, collecting and giving.

Offering a variety of exclusive programs and experiences, Compass provides educational insight into all aspects of CAM and its collection.

COMPASS includes at least three experiential events per season designed to be fun and engaging while encouraging the exchange of ideas and interests, connoisseurship and collecting.

Yearly dues ($1,000/person or $1,500/couple - $500/person if under Forty) gives members a voice in the permanent collection, with a seat at the Acquisitions dinner in February to cast votes on future acquisitions, meet upcoming artists during visits to their studios, and by being inspired by visiting private collectors - is uniquely part of the COMPASS experience.

Many Museums - High, Mint, NCMA, MOCA - have programs similar to Compass, and it has been a dream to offer such an opportunity to our CAM upper level members

CAM COMPASS Votes to Acquire Work by Lien Troung and Fred Wilson

In February, CAM Compass voted to acquire The Peril of Angel's Breath by Lien Troung and Convocation by Fred Wilson. Both works, reviewed for acquisition by CAM's acquisitions committee, contribute to two of CAM's collection focus areas: works on paper and contemporary paintings. Since the giving society's inception, 5 works of art have been acquired thanks to COMPASS, including works by Burk Uzzle, Beverly McIver, and Jaydan Moore.

Compass Memberships for the 2019-2020 season include access to all events...
