The Alliance of Newfields

Founded in 1958, the Alliance of Newfields (formerly the Alliance of the IMA) is one of the most accomplished volunteer organizations in the history of U.S. museums. The Alliance is responsible for bringing in thousands of new members and raising millions of dollars for art acquisitions over the last half century.

The Alliance’s major mission is to support educational programs, activities and projects that encourage public interest in the Indianapolis Museum of Art at Newfields. As an Alliance member, you’ll have the opportunity to be involved in educational programs led by curators and various other noted speakers.

The Alliance is led by a Board of Directors and is advised by a Museum Affiliate liaison.
