Among SFMOMA’s Treasures

Modern Art Council's Beaux Arts Ball, 1985

Among SFMOMA‘s treasures is its Modern Art Council, also known as MAC, a fundraising auxiliary that for nearly 75 years has raised vital funds to support the museum’s exhibitions and programs. Originally called the Women’s Board, MAC held its first meeting in December 1934.

Former MAC presidents Ann FisherCharlotte Maillard Shultz, Dolly Chammas, Sara Cumbelich, Debra Dooley and Ann Joyce Roth joined current MAC President Jill Barnett at Ann Fisher’s home for a planning session for MAC’s 75th anniversary celebration. MAC 75th anniversary event chairs are Tracy Bosche, Candace Cavanaugh and Sue Stewart. All past and present members are invited to celebrate MAC’s 75 years of service to the museum at a luncheon on December 2, 2009. A commemorative book and video are also in the works.
