Irresistible Delights: Recent Gifts to the Art Collection

A peek inside the Museum’s vaults.

Since its founding in 1959, the AD&A Museum has been creating a rich and diverse art collection built on aesthetic value and pedagogical import. Over time, this treasury of art has grown almost entirely through donations to include over 10,000 objects. Today, it is regularly mined and brought out for exhibitions, special programs, and most especially for class visits and instructional use. The title of this exhibition, Irresistible Delights, refers to the pleasure found in enriching and working with a unique collection. But, it also points to the reward of amassing works of art that tempt students and faculty to utilize the collection for object-based study and teaching. A peek inside the Museum’s vaults, Irresistible Delights highlights some of the numerous artworks donated to the Museum during the past decade. Focused almost entirely on contemporary and African art, two fields that have significantly increased, Irresistible Delights reveals how and why the Museum’s collection has developed a unique set of criteria and gained appreciation community-wide.
