Free for all Friends of Fenway Court Patrons. Email us at [email protected] to RSVP for this virtual event. We will reply with the Zoom link to join.

Patrons will receive invitations separately for each event. Please note that events are subject to change and space is limited. Patrons at the Curators' Circle level and above receive invitations for additional events. In addition to signature events, we work with Patrons individually to foster a deeper connection with the Museum through programs and smaller events tailored to their specific interests.

The lead corporate sponsor of the Nasturtium Party is Bank of America. The evening's celebration is also generously sponsored by Rachel Jacoff.

The Hanging Nasturtiums installation is supported by Vivien and Alan Hassenfeld, and Elizabeth and Matthew Denison. Courtyard displays in April are made possible, in part, by the Sorenson Fund for Horticulture. Landscape and Horticulture public programs are supported by the Barbara E. Millen and Markley H. Boyer Endowment Fund.

The Museum also receives operating support from the Massachusetts Cultural Council.
