The Davis Re-Discovered—Opening Celebration

Wednesday, September 28, 2016 | 6:00pm – 9:00pm |

Join the Davis in unveiling its new permanent collections galleries and opening of its fall special exhibitions, Charlotte Brooks at LOOK 1951 ­ 1971, Anni Albers’ Connections, and Partners in Design: Alfred H. Barr Jr. and Philip Johnson.  A free reception open to the public will take place in the lobby, complete with complimentary snacks, beverages and a DJ.

What you’ll see is the result of a three-year project to reimagine the museum and its educational value, and it more than doubles the stuff on view.

Other upcoming events will honor the Davis’s newly installed permanent collections galleries, including a film series that will let viewers uncover the secret life of museums (October 12 to November 30; all films will start at 6:30 p.m.); a Family Day that takes visitors through time and around the globe via an experience designed for all ages (November 5, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.); and “The Davis Reimagined,” when the exhibitions will be paired with performances, talks, art making, and workshops (November 12, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.). See the calendar of public programs for full details.
