For over fifty years, since its founding in 1962, the primary mission of the Friends of the Davison Art Center has been to fund acquisitions for the DAC collection. The FDAC consists of Wesleyan University faculty, staff, alumni, and students, Connecticut residents, and other friends of the arts devoted to the growth and public enjoyment of the DAC collection, one of the finest university collections of graphic art in the United States. The FDAC also has an active program of events for members. The Friends also sponsor a docent program that provides groups from area schools with guided tours of exhibitions at Wesleyan.
