Anna Walker, Windgate Foundation Curatorial Fellow for Contemporary Craft at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, will lead a tour of the exhibition, Beyond Craft: Decorative Arts from the Leatrice S. and Melvin B. Eagle Collection. Lee and Mel Eagle collected a range of media, but the heart of their collection is rich in ceramics with works from icons such as Peter Voulkos, Toshiko Takaezu, Rudy Autio, Robert Arneson, and Viola Frey. Anna will talk about the process of how a museum acquires a collection, how selections were made, and what it means for objects to move from a private to a public collection.
We will meet promptly at 6:30 downstairs in the Beck Building outside Millennium Gallery (across from Café Express).
