Dear Friends of the Meadows Museum,
The New Year is here and 2013 at the Meadows Museum promises to be rich in art experiences and excitement. As we say goodbye to “The Prado at the Meadows” loan series with the closing of the Velázquez exhibition, we welcome an even more ambitious exhibition agreement that was signed in Madrid this past October (see opposite). The fruits of this new level of partnership and collaboration were seen this fall at the Prado Museum where the Martín Rico exhibition opened and had a great success. It’s truly an honor to continue working so closely with the Prado, and we hope you enjoy the future results of this ongoing partnership.
A number of important acquisitions have been made recently thanks to the generosity of supporters from the Meadows Museum Advisory Council, such as Bill and Linda P. Custard (Chair); Catherine (Trinka) B. Taylor; Dr. Mark and Barbara Lemmon (parents of board member Dr. Michael L. Thomas); and Dr. Alan and Janet Coleman. We are enormously thankful to these generous donors as well as for the ongoing sponsorship of The Meadows Foundation.
We are moving forward with making our new “Connections” program more accessible to visitors and
Finally, I would like to welcome everyone to the two-day symposium in early May that will explore the role that art historians and museums have on the development and appreciation of Spanish and Latin-American art today. We will welcome a number of distinguished colleagues from museums and universities in Spain and South America, and hope you take advantage of this unique opportunity to learn about the latest news on the study of Spanish art.
A new package of opportunities makes your membership even more valuable, so please take a look at all the changes here that we have implemented to make your experience even better.
I look forward to seeing you soon at your museum.
