Decades: 90 Years of Collecting

Thursday, October 18, 2018

In honor of the Museum’s 90th Birthday, this exhibit will trace the history and growth of the Museum’s permanent collection beginning with the initial acquisition, in 1928, of a landscape painting by Philadelphia artist Mary Butler. The exhibit will be divided into decades, presenting 10 objects per decade, and will examine the shifting trends and diversity of the Museum’s permanent collection. A wide range of objects will be exhibited including paintings, prints, ceramics, textiles, historical objects, among many others.
