In Gratitude: The Museum Project

August 17, 2017 – May 13, 2018


Over a dozen pre-eminent American artists founded the collective, The Museum Project, seeking a way to express their gratitude for the institutional support of, and commitment to, photography as an art form. This exhibition features a multitude of contemporary perspectives and a rich diversity of styles, concepts, and photographic materials as it explores the recent donation of artwork to the Syracuse University Art Collection.
