Art Illuminating the Spirit

Gifts of Art

The Museum’s collections have benefitted greatly from the generous gift of art by its supporters. Among these is Mr. James Govan, who has begun the incremental transfer of his 500-piece contemporary crèche collection with the initial gift of 50 works. Other recent gifts to both the Martin D’Arcy and LUMA collections span the gamut of cultures, faiths, and media from 308 Neolithic idols to a color lithograph by Marc Chagall and a print series by Stephen Prina.

Gifts are accepted in accordance with the collecting parameters, priorities, and procedures outlined in the Museum’s acquisition policy
