Donor Circles Members are invited to an informal presentation by Director Louis Grachos about artworks recently acquired for the Gallery’s Collection, as well as a sampling of works being considered for the future. 

This slide-illustrated talk will highlight plans for major works of sculpture to revitalize the museum’s campus. The process began last summer with the installation of a major work by Nancy Rubins on the Elmwood Avenue lawn (pictured at right). Grachos will discuss other large-scale works and site-specific projects currently under consideration.
