The Hartford-Tandstad Collection came to the Gregory Allicar Museum of Art in 2014, approximately 200 works of art, including drawings, paintings, sculpture, and decorative arts, primarily dating from the late Renaissance through the 19th century. A selection of works is housed in three permanent galleries focused on themes of Global Encounters, Approaching Nature, and Dialogues with Power. Additional works from the collection are featured in rotating exhibitions.
THE GRIFFIN FOUNDATION GALLERY
In addition to our permanent collection installations, the Gregory Allicar Museum installs 7-10 temporary rotating exhibitions each year. The Griffin Foundation, our largest gallery, is reserved to continue this important aspect of our programming.
WORKS ON PAPER GALLERY
The Works on Paper Gallery features changing exhibitions, primarily drawn from our permanent collection of drawings, prints and photographs.
Building on Survivance, a semi-permanent exhibition curated by students in Dr. Emily Moore’s ART317: Native North American Art class, rotating displays of additional works add modern and contemporary art from the United States and from Latin America.
With creative diversity spanning over 50 countries and thousands of cultures, the arts of the African continent offer a window into unique local contexts and stylistic conventions. Such works of art promote the identity of the artists and cultures from which they originate, and highlight the visual differences found from one region to the next.
