Lasting Legacies: Recent and Promised Gifts to the Permanent Collection
October 27, 2013 – February 23, 2014

Evergreen Museum & Library celebrates more than 70 years of benefaction with the opening of an exciting exhibition documenting the transformative growth of the museum’s collection, showcasing recent and promised gifts from the past two decades and the donors who made them possible.

Spanning three centuries and encompassing several continents, the more than 100 works of fine and decorative art enhance and expand on the museum’s founding collection of American and international art assembled by Baltimore’s philanthropic Garrett family and reflect the museum’s important mission as an educational and cultural resource. The exhibition honors both the foresight of the museum’s founders, Ambassador John Work Garrett and his wife Alice Warder Garrett, and the generosity of those who have become stewards of Evergreen’s purposeful evolution.

Lasting Legacies: Recent and Promised Gifts from the Permanent Collection will appear in the museum's North Wing Gallery, with additional installations in the Main House.
