Made in Florida: The Art of Giving

August 12, 2018 – August 9, 2020 • Made in Florida Gallery

 

Many museums have been established and defined by the donation of a substantial collection. As part of its mission, the Leepa-Rattner Museum of Art focuses on collecting and preserving contemporary Florida artists. Cultivating donations of art that complement a core collection provides a deeper understanding and well-rounded perspective. This enables the museum to remain relevant and to grow.

Made in Florida: The Art of Giving highlights recent donations of art as well as the important role donors have played in supporting the museum through these gifts. This exhibition also tells a visual story of these donors, who are part of the richly diverse cultural community in which we live and work.
