Nissley Gallery: Reinstallation of the Phillips Museum of Art’s Permanent Collection

Reinstallation of the Phillips Museum of Art’s Permanent Collection

Nissley Gallery

January 24-March 8, 2019

 

The Phillips Museum of Art at Franklin & Marshall College is pleased to present a major reinstallation of its Nissley Gallery, showcasing works from our renowned collection. The museum’s permanent collection gallery is named in honor of Tom Nissley ’55, a F&M alumnus who generously provided funding for our permanent collection gallery. Featuring over one hundred works, the exhibition is a broad sampling from the museum’s various core collections and includes pre-Columbian, African and Japanese objects, regionally created furniture, fiber arts and crafts, as well as paintings, sculptures, works on paper and glass created from the 1800s to present day. Many of the works have not been on view prior or are new gifts to the collection; highlights include works by renowned artists such as Thomas Hart Benton, Dale Chihuly, Andy Warhol, Tom Wesselmann and Jamie Wyeth, among others.

Since its charter in 2000, the Phillips Museum of Art at Franklin & Marshall College has been committed to collecting significant examples of material culture from ethnographic objects to art being created today. The collection is evolving, and we are deeply indebted to the many donors who have helped it grow and through their generosity, comprehend that a museum’s collection is its foundation.

 

Please join us for Noon in the Nissley every 2nd and 4th Wednesday each month from January 30 to April 24, 2019. During these mini tours, museum staff and guest “stars” such as Franklin & Marshall College faculty, among others, will highlight three objects on view in the Nissley Gallery.

On February 1, 2019, the Phillips Museum of Art will participate in Lancaster City’s First Friday, 5-9 p.m.

 

The museum’s hours are

Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Fridays 12-4 p.m.

Thursdays 2-6 p.m.

The museum will be closed for spring break on March 8 and will reopen on March 19, 2019.
