Idiosyncratic: Works from the Permanent Collections
Art Museum of Greater Lafayette

Many pieces of artwork are considered during the development of an exhibition. Lists of potential artwork are made and then those lists are narrowed down many times until the final artwork is selected for display. The scope and direction of the exhibition’s theme largely influence those choices. Other factors can include the medium, future, or current exhibitions, how recently a piece has been on display, and so forth. Inevitably, there are always splendid works of art that are not included because of one reason or another.

This exhibition is dedicated to quirky pieces that don’t fit within our usual exhibition selection processes and presents intriguing pieces that show added depth to the museum’s Permanent Collection.
