FWMoA President & CEO Charles Shepard expounds on the differences between collecting and accumulating art: the former directed by intent while the latter is not.
President & CEO Charles Shepard discusses the virtual art market during this time at home and how he continues to add to the FWMoA collection for everyone to enjoy once we reopen to the public.
Seven distinct gallery spaces, over a dozen phenomenal sculptures spread throughout our grounds, and two giant doors we try extremely hard to hide in plain sight! We’ve featured several artworks in our “Treasures from the Vault” series, offering a peek behind our “barn doors”, but we can’t possible feature everything in our collection! We have over 6,500 items in our permanent collection, so even if we featured a new piece every day it would take us 19 years to show them all. How did we get so many items in our collection? Where did they come from? Why can’t they all be on display at once? Find out in today’s Art Term Tuesday!
