Past Exhibition

From Durer to Warhol and Beyond

Featuring 163 works of art from 42 private collections, this exhibition was best described as a museum within a museum. Visitors could progress from Old Masters to cutting-edge contemporary art in one leisurely stroll.

The overall strength of the show stemmed from the sophistication of the collectors, and among the exceptional pieces on display were works by Ansel Adams, Thomas Hart Benton, Albert Bierstadt, Dale Chihuly, Winslow Homer, Roy Lichtenstein, Georgia O’Keeffe, Lino Tagliapietra, Grant Wood and more.

It’s been nearly two decades since the Chrysler presented an exhibition of works gathered from private collections, and as our curators started the yearlong process of organizing the show, they reported incredible advances in the range, depth, and quality of privately held art in our region. The number of new collectors has grown significantly, and veteran collectors have refined and expanded their holdings.

Andy Warhol The Shadow

Ansel Adams The Tetons and the Snake River

Featuring 163 works of art from 42 private collections, this exhibition was best described as a museum within a museum. Visitors could progress from Old Masters to cutting-edge contemporary art in one leisurely stroll.

The result is a display of tremendous quality and diversity, one that highlights the strength and sophistication of the collecting impulse in Hampton Roads. A region’s cultural health is gauged not only by the vigor of public institutions like the Chrysler, but also by the knowledge, commitment, and taste of its private collectors.

As Our Community Collects: From Dürer to Warhol and Beyond clearly shows, the cultural heartbeat of Hampton Roads is resolutely steady and strong.
