Exhibition "The Gift of Art" currently on view at PAMM


For the presentation of the museum’s permanent collection during its 35th anniversary year, the understanding of art as gift for future generations, is being conflated conceptually with the celebration of donations of art that have been made to the museum during the last several decades.

The artworks currently on view under “The gift of Art” represent examples of the works that have been gifted to the museum since it first became a collecting institution in 1994. While each artwork embodies a distinct form of expression, they additionally represent the generosity of the donors who have chosen to move it from the private sphere of their personal collections into the public sphere of the museum’s holdings. Within each of these donations lies the belief in sharing with as many people as possible, the gift of art.
