Museum collections are alive, Like the culture around them, they grow and change, responding to new ideas and new circumstances ranging from iPhones to ISIS. The culture engine never stops, and likewise the collecting museum feels an urgency to reflect how the world is changing around it. By acquiring new objects from the past and present, museums introduce diverse voices and points-of-view to the ongoing conversation. Collections grow through interpretation and reinterpretation as works connect to new audiences. In this way, the past is an active part of the present. At the LUAG Teaching Museum, we are indebted to alumni, parents, and friends who support the growth of the collection. Their generosity and vision are reflected in this exhibition, highlighting new acquisitions from the past five years. The exhibition includes works by: Henri Matisse, Georges Roualt, Georges Barque, Pablo Picasso, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Camille Pissarro, Irina Ionesco, Luis Gonzáles Palma, Joel Meyerowitz, Andy Warhol, and many others.
