Opening tonight after nearly three years in the making, this momentous transformation of the Davis Museum at Wellesley College represents a milestone of “rediscovery.” R+L designed the galleries, exhibition sequence & extensive new exhibition casework in a collaborative process that included Davis curators, conservators, scholars and specialists. Over three floors, the new Davis galleries tell stories of collecting at Wellesley College, presenting the global breadth and strength of its encyclopedic holdings. This major project more than doubles the previous number of works of art available for the public to experience.
