the Davis. Without Immigrants

Thursday, February 16, 2017 - 11:00am to Tuesday, February 21, 2017 - 5:00pm
Davis Galleries
Approximately twenty percent of the works of art on view in our permanent collections galleries were created by artists or donated by collectors who immigrated to the United States.  For the days leading up to and including the Presidents' Day holiday weekend we have removed or cloaked these works to demonstrate symbolically what the Davis Museum would look like without their contributions to our collections and to Wellesley College, and to thereby honor their many invaluable gifts.  
 
Absences created by the removal or obscuring of works from view will be marked with labels that indicate “made by an immigrant” or “given by an immigrant.” Sympathetic institutions that would like to underscore the contributions of immigrants to their own collections can download these labels for use here.
