A suite of exhibitions features the most recent additions to the Center’s collections. In honor of the Center’s fortieth anniversary, the displays incorporates selections from the last of Paul Mellon’s gifts to the Center, which include several works with which his wife Rachel Lambert Mellon lived until her death, in 2014. Gifts from other significant donors, such as Joseph McCrindle, are also featured, as well as donations of important modern and contemporary prints, and a group of works by the painter John Golding from the artist’s estate, which trace his development as an abstract painter.

These exhibitions are curated by Elisabeth Fairman, Chief Curator of Rare Books and Manuscripts; Matthew Hargraves, Chief Curator of Art Collections and Head of Collections Information and Access; and Lars Kokkonen, Assistant Curator of Paintings and Sculpture; under the direction of Scott Wilcox, Deputy Director for Collections.
