The McNay Contemporary Collectors Forum (MCCF) supports contemporary art at the McNay and builds bridges between the museum and San Antonio's vibrant art community. MCCF members enjoy privileges including exclusive viewings of exhibitions and private collections, travel opportunities, participation in the acquisition of new contemporary art for the museum, and distinctive educational presentations with critics, curators, and art historians. MCCF is responsible for initiating the Artists Looking at Art series, which features four artists each year and displays their work in the museum for three months. MCCF also hosts Art to the Power of 10, an annual fund raising event held each fall, and directly supports the McNay’s art acquisition fund. Held at the McNay and featuring ten galleries, dealers, and artists, this is MCCF’s largest fundraising opportunity. The one-night art fair features creative food and cocktails in a festive atmosphere.
