Exhibition | Aug. 14, ’21-Mar. 6, 2022 | Bloch Building, Gallery L13

This exhibition explores the beginnings of the Nelson-Atkins collection and the personalities behind it: from archaeological excavations, to Laurence Sickman’s purchases in China, to the influence of important art dealers, to the first gifts from Kansas City collectors. Origins: Collecting to Create the Nelson-Atkins brings to life the remarkable stories of how a major museum formed in the Depression-era Midwest.
