THE LATEST EVENTS FROM THE DECORATIVE ARTS SOCIETY
Membership is international and is open to all who are interested in any aspect of this vast field. No specialist knowledge is required. Existing members include collectors, dealers, libraries, museum curators, teachers, students, artists and designers, all of whom wish to share their enthusiasm with others.
The DAS’s close links with museum professionals include arranging study visits to collections and supporting the participation of curators in its events. Occasional grants are made to help fund museum purchases, and further support to museums is being developed through two curatorial Collections Access Grants. Funds from the 40th Anniversary Fund will help extend this work.
The DAS has an international reputation for its scholarship on the decorative arts, which is disseminated worldwide through the annual Journal.
