Advisory Committee

To ensure that the CAS maintains the highest standards of quality, an Acquisitions Advisory Committee oversees all acquisitions and Special Projects.

The committee comprises of arts professionals with special expertise in particular media, or period.  The committee meets three times a year to review progress on fine art and craft acquisitions and to offer guidance and opinions on the suitability of gifts and bequests offered.  Feedback from the committee is communicated to museum staff and is highly valued.
