Changes in the Collection Galleries

Many of the Center's 24 galleries present works from the collection plus long-term loans. Each collection gallery is dedicated to a distinct era or type of art. Together the galleries span the history of art from ancient China and Egypt to the 21st century.

Works in the galleries change on a regular basis.

Freidenrich Family Gallery
Culture Clash! Comics and Cartoons in Contemporary Art
Comic books and cartoons appeal to modern and contemporary artists who question issues of "high" and "low" in art. The installation is comprised of works from the Marmor Foundation and the permanent collection. Including cartoons for comics, as well as editioned prints, it features such prominent artists as Roy Lichtenstein, Vernon Fisher, Claes Oldenburg, and Enrique Chagoya, who appropriate techniques and motifs from comic books to engage their audience and comment on American culture.

Madeleine H. Russell Gallery
Chinese Contemporary Art on loan from Mr. and Mrs. L. S. Kwee
While Chinese contemporary art demonstrates the continuity of cultural tradition in the use of media and imagery that resonate with the past, it also mirrors the dramatic changes that China has undergone in the recent past, particularly since the end of the Cultural Revolution in 1976.

Rowland K. Rebele Gallery

can contribute to the development of Buddhist discourse and practices appropriate to the 21st century and to the West, while still holding true to the fundamental insights that constitute Buddhism.
