Event Description
With a collection of over 36,000 objects spanning thousands of years and much of the globe, the Spencer Museum of Art has the astute eye and generosity of many collectors in which to be thankful. Highlighting the foundational collections of Sally Casey Thayer and the Samuel H. Kress Foundation and the more recent donation of 50 works from the modern collection of Herbert and Dorothy Vogel, this presentation will uncover the fascinating stories and circumstances of these important gifts and the collectors who assembled them.
