Work in Progress: The Weisman Museum Collection at 30

May 20–July 30, 2023

As the Weisman celebrates its 30th year, the museum is devoting all three of its galleries to the care and display of the growing permanent collection, which now numbers over 500 works of art across media. Work in Progress is an exhibition in two parts: downstairs, recent acquisitions and rotating highlights from the collection will be on view; upstairs, in a gallery-turned-workshop, museum staff will be actively photographing, cataloging, and researching works in the collection, serving to make them more accessible for current and future audiences. We invite our visitors to enjoy this rare view into collection care and this unprecedented opportunity to see so many of the works stewarded by the Weisman Museum.
