New Acquisitions

A collection evolves through time, growing in ways that reflect a variety of imperatives. At the MHCAM, the curators search for acquisitions in a variety of fields with the goal of building on the strengths of the current holdings and bolstering areas that offer great value for teaching. Since its founding, the MHCAM has reflected world cultures throughout time and this continues to be the overall vision for the Museum’s collecting efforts.
