Each year, the Silver Dollar Society helps The Rockwell advance as a valuable community resource, a place of learning, and a world-class museum of art about America.  Society members develop long-term relationships with individuals interested in American Western and Native American art and culture, build a sense of community “ownership” of the Museum, and help ensure that our unique collection of art is available for future generations of residents and visitors to the region.

2019 Silver Dollar Society Events

Members of the Silver Dollar Society are invited to join an exclusive dining experience with leaders from the Smithsonian. As part of our Questioning Identity lecture series, a post-lecture dinner with the speaker will be offered in the Museum galleries following the February, March and April lectures.

Space is extremely limited and will be reserved on a first come, first served basis. Due to limited space, interested parties are asked to register for only one opportunity. Dinner selections and dietary restrictions will be collected via email closer to the event.
