HMA DNA: Collection Highlights
Haggerty Museum of Art, Marquette University
The Haggerty Museum of Art’s institutional genetic code is formed by a collection of over 10,000 works of art created from the Renaissance period to the present. Marquette University began to acquire works of art shortly after it was founded in 1881. These early collecting efforts laid the foundation for what would become, over a century later, the collection of the Haggerty Museum of Art. This exhibition presents a selection of the Haggerty’s most celebrated works of art.
