Promises of Great Things to Come: Future Gifts to the Collections of the Columbus Museum

December 4, 2012 - February 3, 2013

Third Floor Galleries

This special exhibition has been organized in celebration of the Museum’s 60th Anniversary. Consisting of important gifts of American art and regional history that will come to the Museum in the future, this exhibition demonstrates how indispensable generous collectors are in growing and strengthening the Museum’s collection. While the exhibition is on display, special labels in the second floor permanent collection galleries will indicate important gifts from the last six decades. In addition to chronological presentation of the objects in their historical eras, the exhibition highlights collectors and their stories, and a video in the exhibition describes how an object goes from a collector’s home to the Museum’s collection.

This exhibition is made possible by the generous funding from the Columbus Regional Healthcare System and the 2012 Let There Be Art fundraiser.
