Inside, Outside, Upstairs, Downstairs: the Addison Anew
Open through March 27, 2011
To celebrate the Addison’s much anticipated reopening, the Addison’s curatorial team has developed a comprehensive exhibition of historical and contemporary art objects chosen from the museum’s extraordinary collection. Celebrated treasures, old favorites, less familiar works, and newly acquired pieces are grouped thematically to illustrate the great strengths of the Addison collection and to create engaging dialogues among works across media and time.
The reopening of the Addison Gallery is an exciting occasion to honor the historic architecture of this treasured museum, to highlight its extensive and illustrious collection, and to reveal the elegant new facilities that will allow the museum’s many services to its varied audiences—whether students, teachers, patrons, visitors, or scholars—to deepen and grow.
This exhibition is generously supported by the Sidney R. Knafel Fund.
