Object Lessons: Art & Its Histories

Ongoing

Spanning the second floor of the museum, Object Lessons: Art & its Histories presents the most significant reinstallation of the museum's permanent collection galleries in many years. Organized around the curriculum of Art 1, Stanford's introduction to the history of Western Art, the exhibition reflects the museum’s deepened commitment to academic engagement, teaching through objects and belief in the power of close looking.
