CIRCLE OF PATRONS
The idea for the Circle of Patrons (COP) was born of the understanding that the operation of a dynamic museum and the ability to purchase artwork depends, among other things, on sponsors. Its goal has been the establishment of a civically minded body of patrons who share the conviction that the Leopold Museum’s collection has established a significant identity in terms of art and cultural history, in order to raise awareness within society as a whole.
The Board of Leopold Museums´ Directors and Gen. Dir. Georg Pölzl, head of the Circle of Patrons Board, actively support this initiative.
