Young Fellows of the Morgan

About us

The Young Fellows is a lively group of young professionals (21–39 years old) who share a deep appreciation for the Morgan. Throughout the year the Young Fellows are invited to participate in various social and cultural events to engage with and learn about the collections, and deepen their understanding of the arts and humanities.

Young Fellows membership dues provide essential financial support so that the Morgan may continue presenting world-class exhibitions and programs.
