Introduction to the Centers

August 15, 2011 - November 20, 2011
Dorothy Alexander Roush and Martha Thompson Dinos Galleries

One of the key elements in GMOA’s expansion was the construction of its Study Centers in the Humanities, four named units containing archives that supplement the museum’s collection and promote hands-on research. This small exhibition serves as an introduction to three of the four: the C.L. Morehead Jr. Center for the Study of American Art, the Jacob Burns Foundation Center (devoted to the study of prints and drawings) and the Pierre Daura Center. Paintings, prints and drawings, as well as archival materials including letters and photos relating to Pierre Daura and Alfred Heber Holbrook (the founder and first director of GMOA) will be on view. The exhibition will be followed by an introduction to the fourth center, the Henry D. Green Center for the Study of the Decorative Arts, which will be on display during GMOA’s biennial Henry D. Green Symposium of the Decorative Arts, Feb. 2–4, 2012.
