Director's Acquisition Committee

The Director’s Acquisition Committee (DAC) meets twice a year to discuss potential acquisitions of new works of art in consultation with curators and UMMA staff.

My goal in gifting this collection to the University of Michigan is both to preserve it for generations to come, but also to help foster that same love and passion for the exploration of technique and history that I’ve developed over the years.
