American Friends of the V&A 2017-02-21T14:22:58+00:00

The American Friends of the V&A was incorporated in 1984. The organization works to strengthen the international presence of the Victoria and Albert Museum and encourage the American public to engage with this outstanding museum.

The V&A was founded in 1852 and is the world’s leading museum of art and design. In the 21st century the V&A has extended its reach.

Touring exhibitions, loans, curatorial exchanges with other institutions and a strong online presence bring the V&A’s collection and expertise to audiences across the world.
