The Morris Museum Director’s Circle is a group of art-loving, fun-loving friends who support the Museum at its core.

In conjunction with a dynamic Board of Directors and community leaders of Morristown, those belonging to the Director’s Circle help promote the Museum’s mission: celebrating art, science, history, and the performing arts by providing engaging exhibitions and programs, all of which are designed to excite the mind and promote cultural interests. They also help the Museum’s vision of education, entertaining, and inspiring diverse audiences of all ages, abilities, and backgrounds.
