Established  in 1983, the Friends of the Collection comprises individuals whose generosity directly supports the acquisition, conservation, and care for the collection as well as related programming. The collection of more than 18,000 works of art is the heart of the institution, and the Friends of the Collection is instrumental in shaping and maintaining it.
 
 
The Friends of the Collection supports acquisitions like Isamu Noguchi's outstanding work Play Sculpture for the PMA collection. Play Sculpture will be featured in the fall exhibition Beyond the Pedestal: Isamu Noguchi and the Borders of Sculpture opening October 5, before taking its place in the David E. Shaw and Family Sculpture Park in the Joan B. Burns Garden in Spring 2019.
