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 also deserve recognition. In anticipation of RMAC's 80th anniversary in October, this exhibit celebrates some of the major donors who have contributed to the formation of the Museum's core holdings, and features selections from the Southwest art collection, the Robert H. Goddard Collection, and the Rogers and Mary Ellen Aston Collection of the American West. Co-curated by several RMAC staff members, Collecting Roswell highlights the ongoing importance of philanthropy to museums and other cultural institutions.
