The Museum Collects showcased objects recently acquired by the museum, from the departments of American and European Art, American and European Decorative Arts, Contemporary Art, and Costume and Textiles. The exhibition was accompanied by a series of gallery talks called “Conversations With Curators” that explored how decisions are made to balance newly acquired works with works already in the collection. In addition to exhibition space off of Morgan Great Hall other new acquisitions on view in galleries throughout the museum were highlighted.
