Event Description
Did you know there are Rembrandts in your midst? Spencer Museum of Art Curators Steve Goddard and Kate Meyer discuss the rich history of the Spencer Museum’s print collection and reveal a few details about the renovations underway at the Museum including new and improved access to the print collection. Highlights range from the founding gift from Sallie Casey Thayer to art from the Works Progress Administration, the Max Kade Collection of old master prints, the Gene Swenson Collection of Pop Art, gifts from the Warhol Foundation, and a recent gift of World War One prints. This program is presented in conjunction with Print Week.
