To mark the Brooks’ 100th anniversary, our dedicated, generous patrons and support groups have gifted the museum more than 100 spectacular works of art. Ranging from ancient coins to contemporary glass, from paintings to quilts, the exhibition will display all of these gifts in glorious profusion. 100 Gifts for 100 Years is the perfect way not only to celebrate the museum’s first century of existence, but to look forward to our next 10 decades of engaging, enriching and inspiring our community.
