Museum collections are built primarily through gifts and strategic purchases that undergo a lengthy approval process before they are accessioned into the collection and revealed to the public. Ultimately, the most important part of this process is to see the works of art in person, and for the first time, The Westmoreland is offering our visitors a rare opportunity to view the proposed gifts and purchases as they are being considered.
