About the Patrons

Creation of Adam and Eve

The Patrons of the Arts in the Vatican Museums is an interfaith group committed to the restoration, preservation and increase in artistic patrimony of the collections and buildings of the Vatican Museums. We work to further the members understanding and knowledge of these works through lectures, meetings and visits to the Vatican.

The Arizona Chapter is a 501(c)3 non-profit.

The Patrons help the Vatican Museums:

  • Spread knowledge of the specific cultural and spiritual goals of the Vatican Museums as well as the various Vatican offices and basilicas in Rome and the collections they hold

  • Support the activities of the Vatican Museums and promote restoration of other works of art for the Holy See under Museum Direction authority

  • Promote the acquisition of new works which complement the existing collections

  • Support future expansion of the Museums
