Debut: Recent Acquisitions

Dates: June 14, 2019–September 1, 2019

Debut: Recent Acquisitions features important acquisitions from the past four years in the McClung Museum’s eclectic arts and culture collection. Many of the objects have never been on display.

From ancient Mexican ceramics and new additions to our extensive map collection, to Cherokee carving and modern and contemporary works on paper, these items reflect the enormous diversity of the McClung’s holdings and the generosity of donors who helped to add important objects to our collections.

The objects also illustrate the work of museum staff to fill cultural gaps needed to support the McClung’s educational mission. These treasures underscore the museum’s continued relevancy as a site for inspiration and pondering our world and its wonder.



The exhibition is made possible by generous support from the Elaine Altman Evans Museum Fund, Elizabeth and David Etnier, Gene and Lana Branson, and Jupiter Entertainment.
