New Museum Los Gatos (NUMU)
Los Gatos, California
New Museum Los Gatos (NUMU) is pleased to announce “New Additions 2019,” the inaugural quinquennial exhibition program highlighting gifts and acquisitions to its Permanent Art Collection from 2014, the year the Los Gatos Museums Association began the transition to New Museum Los Gatos, to 2019.
“The NUMU Permanent collection is in many ways the soul of the museum, a vital component to the museum’s mission. The art and artifacts in the collection reflects the exhibitions we curate and hence create a history of the organization, the community, society and politics as reflected in our exhibits,” explains Executive Director, Maureen Cappon-Javey. “In this way, museums are trustees of a community’s cultural capital. They shape lasting impressions of communities and their aesthetic values and creativity.”
