Selections: Works from the Turchin Center Permanent Collection

July 1, 2011 – December 3, 2011(This exhibition has passed.)

The Selections Exhibition features eighty-five works of art from the Turchin Center for the Visual Arts’ Permanent Collection. Since 2003, the collection has grown impressively with the addition of many objects by well-known artists.  The majority of this collection focuses on artworks of aesthetic, cultural, and historic significance and represents a cross-section of media, caliber of artist, and scope of the collection.  Artists, patrons and organizations, for the purpose of enriching and strengthening the depth of the collection,  play an important role in the donation of objects featured in this collection.  

In addition, the collection will be adding to its holdings by the end of 2011 with two major gifts to the collection of over 600 objects.  An example of these works are featured as part of the exhibition as Future Acquisitions.  

The Permanent Collection employs its objects as an integral component of the Turchin Center’s exhibition program by providing material for rotating exhibits within the Turchin’s six galleries. These exhibits are important in relaying the depth of the collection, providing educational opportunities, and serve as an example of the importance of creating, maintaining, and exhibiting a collection.  The collection is also used as a teaching tool for students and volunteers who are interested in learning about collections management, as well as to provide opportunities for research, preventive care, and organization.
