An Introduction To
The Collectors Circle is a Ghanaian platform for aspiring collectors of African art and antiquities. We are a dynamic group of both emerging and established collectors who share a strong interest in art and supporting Accra’s role as a growing arts capital of West Africa. We can help you build a great collection while increasing your investment. We have several artists right now that fit this context. Membership gifts support Untamed Empire’s core artists in residency program including the Artist Lab Residency that focuses on emerging West African-based artists.
Whether you are an art collector, enthusiast or want to learn more about art, this group is for you!
