Revisioning the Spencer Museum of Art’s Collection Galleries

Implementation of a thematic reinstallation of the permanent collection at the Spencer Museum of Art.

The revisioning of the Spencer Museum of Art's collection galleries will expand the diversity of cultures and identities represented in these exhibitions, center the experiences and comfort of visitors, and foster sustained inquiries into broad humanistic themes. The resulting exhibitions will be organized around four overlapping themes exploring ideas of intersections, empowerment, displacement, and illumination. These new thematic exhibitions will rebalance the collection galleries to showcase a breadth of mediums and foreground works of art by Black, Indigenous, and other artists of color and by women. An award from the National Endowment for the Humanities would provide critical support for continued community involvement in the realization of the project, as well as for casework, seating, production and installation, and evaluation of these fully reinstalled collection galleries across their first three years on view (2022-2025).
