The Heckscher Museum Celebrates 100:
Tracing History, Inspiring the Future

Now on View

The Heckscher Museum of Art opened on July 10, 1920. The Heckscher Museum Celebrates 100: Tracing History, Inspiring the Future commemorates the fascinating people art, and events that have shaped the thriving Museum during its first century.

The exhibition weaves together masterworks spanning six centuries, archival material, and rarely exhibited objects. Each gallery illuminates a defining chapter of the Museum’s story: its founding by civic leaders August and Anna Atkins Heckscher, the transformational directorship of Eva Gatling, its role in preserving the legacies of American modernists Arthur Dove and Helen Torr, and the donation of hundreds of artworks from the Baker/Pisano Collection.  Outstanding individual acquisitions punctuate the exhibition, which culminates with new purchases and gifts that advance the Museum’s commitment to a more equitable and inclusive future.
