Our growing permanent collection features a rich holding of prints and photographs that span the earliest days of photography to the latest digital print technologies.
Recently, we acquired 300 objects that need to be matted and photographed to make them accessible to our visitors. Included are works by German Avant Garde photographer Ilsa Bing; Magnum photographers Leonard Freedand Danny Lyon; and renowned artist Andy Warhol.
The Henry’s print collection has been featured in numerous publications and on PBS Television’s History Detectives series. Our photography collection is a vital resource that supports our educational and community partnerships.
Our power2give project will ensure that these works of art are preserved for generations and will prepare them for display in our exhibitions, for study by students and the public at the museum, and for access through the collection search resource featured on our website.
Please make a gift to help us undertake this project over summer 2014!
