Sunday Conversations in the Galleries: The Robert H. Goddard Collection

with Jeremy Howe
Sunday, August 6
2 pm | Free



Join us as we launch a new series of free, informal gallery talks that focus on the Museum’s collections and current exhibits. For our first series, we’ll take a look at Collecting Roswell: The Donors of RMAC. In anticipation of the Museum’s 80th anniversary in October, Collecting Roswell celebrates some of the major contributions to the formation of the Museum’s core holdings. Drawing from the art collection, the Robert H. Goddard Collection, and the Rogers and Mary Ellen Aston Collection of the American West, this exhibit showcases some of the Museum’s finest works while highlighting the contributions of several significant donors. Come learn more about RMAC’s collections and meet some of the exceptional staff who work here.
