Description

The Art of Collecting: Alfred Atmore Pope & Randolph Linsly Simpson

Hill-Stead Museum, in collaboration with The Amistad Center for Art & Culture, presents a unique exhibition featuring selections from its decorative arts holdings in dialogue with historical pieces from The Amistad Center. The exhibition focuses on two pioneering individuals, Alfred Atmore Pope and Randolph Linsly Simpson, exploring the relationship between their collecting ideologies. The show allows visitors to perceive the pieces on view, and their historical significance, in a new context. Objects will be shown in monthly rotations, with related programming. Hill-Stead Museum thanks The Edward C. & Ann T. Roberts Foundation, without whose generous support this show would not be possible.

Cost $12 adults; $10 seniors; $8 students; $5 children ages 6-12; free to members and
