Abstract:
The process for how an art museum plans and displays an exhibition of art is detailed. Frequently, a lending museum begins the process by contacting other museums who might be interested in displaying their art. The potential exhibiting museum must then decide if showing the art is worth the cost and time. Once a collection is agreed to be shown, plans are decided for how the art will be installed and many staff members collaborate to prepare to display the collection. The success of the recent Art Nouveau to Art Moderne exhibit used as an example to illustrate each step of the process.

Abstract:
A terracotta sculpture by French artist Joseph Charles Marin (1759-1834) was recently purchased by the Museum. The sculpture is titled Bacchante Carrying a Child on Her Shoulders and was sculpted during the late 18th century when such sculptures were popular. Marin was a student and collaborator of the artist Claude-Michel Clodion and likely created the figure between the 1780s and 1796.
