The Innovators

Innovators are energetic individuals who enjoy meeting at events and taking on active roles within the Museum community. We are a connected and inspired group of people who receive four specialized events each year and unprecedented access to the Museum. We are the next generation of Museum leaders, philanthropists, and volunteers.
