The Making of a Museum: 100 Years, 100 Works

The exhibition The Making of a Museum: 100 Years, 100 Works from the Permanent Collection, features works representative of the institution’s collecting history and mission. The collection is unique—with significant holdings of ancient Greek and Roman art, as well as increased acquisitions of modern and contemporary art. With eight main categories, the collection features a breadth of objects: Classical Antiquities, Prints and Photographs Related to Classical Antiquity, the C. Paul Jennewein Archive, Painting, Decorative Arts and Sculpture, Photography, Works on Paper, and New Media, Video, and Installation Art.

The Making of a Museum: 100 Years, 100 Works will present unique insight into how the collection and identity of the Museum have evolved as it has grown from a small local arts organization to the City’s preeminent museum of art.
