Overview

For those in the know, the collections of the Roswell Museum and Art Center are renowned for their quality and diversity, but the donors who have shared these works with the community are equally important. In anticipation of RMAC’s 80th anniversary, Collecting Roswell celebrates the major donors who have contributed to the formation of the Museum’s core holdings, and features objects from the art collection, the Robert H. Goddard Collection, and the Aston Collection of the American West. This selection invites visitors to explore the rich collecting history behind some of RMAC’s most celebrated pieces, and consider the ongoing importance of philanthropy to museums as cultural institutions.
