Sketchy: Drawings and Studies from the Permanent Collection

November 20, 2019 - July 2, 2020

This exhibition showcases a selection of works from the Museum’s Permanent Collection. It highlights the process an artist takes from a sketch or preliminary drawing to a completed work.

Works on paper are more sensitive to light and environmental conditions than other types of media; this show presents a rare opportunity to view some of the pieces from the Collection which have seldom been on exhibit or are making their first debut from the vault.
