“Collectors for Connoisseurship (C4C)” is a Windows to the Divine national network of collectors and art lovers dedicated to art appreciation and collecting. C4C members meet in-person at special events like the C4C Arts Weekend, and engage and interact through an online forum on the Windows to the Divine website where they can access resources such as the Know2collect video library and blogs by artists and art experts. Resources and events for C4C members are designed to encourage an understanding of the importance of not only viewing art in museums and public places, but collecting art for their own personal spaces, thereby supporting the vocation of living artists today.
