A Decade at the Center: Recent Gifts and Acquisitions
GRAM closes out a yearlong celebration of the Museum’s first decade at 101 Monroe Center with an exhibition featuring works of art and design acquired through gift and purchase in commemoration of this auspicious anniversary. The exhibition spans all areas in which GRAM collects, from 19th century paintings to modern furniture, vintage photographs to rare Renaissance era engravings, and historical design objects to contemporary art. Artists in the exhibition include Mathias Alten, Monir Farmanfarmaian, Janet Fish, Alfred Stieglitz, James Van Der Zee, and Rembrandt van Rijin among many others.
With this exhibition, GRAM celebrates the crucial role of gifts in our ongoing effort to build one of the most notable collections in the American Midwest. Since the Museum’s inception in 1910, the generosity of our patrons has been crucial to building our permanent collection of over 6,000 objects.
