The Permanent Collection

July 28, 2020 - June 13, 2021

Curated by Sonya Jones

In countless literary epic journeys, the hero(ine) encounters trials and adventures along their path, which ultimately lead to personal growth and transformation. While these mythic stories are fictional, they can reflect our common experiences. Over the course of our lives we too embark on both physical and emotional journeys that lead to new perspectives. Drawing together works to explore how the journey can often be more important than the destination, this Permanent Collection exhibition is divided into four sections: Going Places, Movement of Goods, Wandering Artists, and Spiritual Explorations.

Our Permanent Collection holds over 4,700 artworks and is continuously evolving through both the exploration of fresh narratives as well as the acquisition of new artwork. As the world experiences restrictions on physical travelling, we invite you to let the collection take you to new places and consider the journey we are all on together.
