Beyond the Frame
Celebrating 70 Years of Collecting
On View January 28, 2022 - May 1, 2022
Three thousand works is a lot of art! But how were they chosen? And how are they cared for? As we kick off the Hunter’s 70th anniversary, we are presenting an exhibition that explores the behind-the-scenes world of museum art collecting and spotlights some of the Hunter Museum’s most prized pieces, including stunning recent acquisitions. Learn how the Hunter began its journey as a collecting institution and what inspires our collection today.
Organized by the Hunter Museum of American Art.
