Introduction to the Art Museums

Coming in 2020
Will be on view in the Bob and Marion Wilson Family Gallery
This exhibition has been generously funded by Catharine and Kevin Broderick.

A portal to both the DeWitt Wallace Decorative Arts Museum and the Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Folk Art Museum, this exhibition will introduce these two world-class collections. Furniture, paintings, silver, ceramics, sculpture, textiles and more will tempt guests to explore each museum in depth. The exhibition will also address the legacies of Abby Aldrich Rockefeller and DeWitt Wallace, who played key roles in the creation of the museums that bear their names.
