The Daum at 20: Origins of the Collection

September 30, 2022 - May 28, 2023 Admission

The Daum at 20 celebrates the twentieth anniversary of the museum’s opening in 2002. The museum-wide exhibition will highlight the most significant acquisitions during this time period. Since the museum’s founding, based on the personal collection of the Daum’s primary benefactor, Dr. Harold F. Daum, the collection has increased from about 200 artworks to more than 2,000. The exhibition will be divided into media, with focuses on painting, ceramics, photography, prints, and a section devoted to the original works that were once installed in Dr. Daum’s home. Among the artists to be featured are Helen Frankenthaler, Larry Poons, Philomene Dosek Bennett, and Gene Davis.
