On Familiar Terms with Art

Friends support and help one another where they can. For example in researching, collecting, preserving and communicating. The Association of Friends of the LENTOS aims to support and promote the museum. Through the purchase of art works the Association supports the museum direction in further expanding the Collection. Since the Association was founded in 1985, members have purchased works by Tony Cragg, Gerwald Rockenschaub or EVA & ADELE  and others. With their friendship they contribute to strengthening LENTOS as one of the leading addresses for modern and contemporary art, thus promoting the important social, artistic and academic tasks of the museum.

The museum also gives something back to you as a good friend:
you become part of a pulsating art scene and provide – tax deductible – support for one of the most important museums of modern and contemporary art in Austria.
