Our

Mission

California and Northwest Patrons of the Arts in the Vatican Museums is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization committed to the restoration, preservation and promotion of the artistic patrimony entrusted to the Vatican Museums. We also further our members’ understanding and appreciation of such art through private presentations, behind the scenes tours of artist studios and museum visits, special gatherings, and one of a kind visits to the Vatican. We also provide opportunities for our members to get together and socialize with each other several times throughout the year.
