People’s Choice: Selections from the Permanent Collection

January 26 – May 12, 2002

Murray and Ledger Galleries

In an effort to give our visitors a more direct role in determining the artworks selected for display, we invited all visitors to the Museum to cast votes for their favorite artworks. Visitors were given access to images of approximately one-half of the Museum’s Permanent Collection; these images represented artworks currently in storage but available for exhibition. During the voting period, October 26, 2001 – January 13, 2002, visitors were asked to vote for as many as three artworks. The Curatorial Department then tallied the votes and installed the most frequently selected artworks, along with any statements made by voters that explained their attraction to their selections.
