““A Celebration of Nearly 90 years of Collecting: The Art Museums at Colonial Williamsburg”

This talk will be an overview of the museum collections and a guide of what to see during your visit. As curator of fine, decorative, and folk art paintings, drawings, and sculpture, I’ll provide an introduction to the Art Museums at Colonial Williamsburg–the history of the Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Folk Art Museum and DeWitt Wallace Decorative Arts Museum collections, highlighted works of art, special exhibitions you won’t want to miss, and upcoming projects, including the 55,000 square foot museum expansion which opens next spring.”
