The Alliance of the Swope

The Alliance of the Swope was founded in 1952 by the Mmes. P.E. Allen, Oscar Baur, George Carroll, Alfred Cornell, Ward Hubbard, F. Burch Ijams, and Ralph O. Yeager. Their key goal was to promote the Museum’s exhibition programming, whether by serving as volunteer hostesses, docents, or sponsoring fundraising events.

Since that time, the Alliance has been indispensable in aiding the Museum as it fulfills its mission, supporting the Museum’s exhibitions and programming while creating additional learning opportunities for Alliance members.

Alliance meetings are held at 10:00 a.m. on the third Friday of each month September through May, excluding December. Meetings are held at the Swope, unless otherwise noted. Annual Alliance dues are $25 plus your choice of Museum membership.

For further membership information, or to join, please attend a meeting or contact the Museum at 812.238.1676.
