Blog / Collectors make us stronger

Posted

Jonathan Prinz, one of our most thoughtful and dedicated visitors, stopped by to see Time Capsule this week. As usual, he did not disappoint us with his unique take on things.
“Hardly a museum exists anywhere in the world that isn’t built around, or strengthened by, works amassed by collectors,” he writes.  “In that sense, they haven’t only been collecting for themselves, but also for us.  The Nasher Museum at Duke University is named for such collectors and its newly opened exhibit, Time Capsule, celebrates the collecting of another, if not collecting itself.”

Read more of Jonathan’s thoughts in the lively art blog  artbouillon.
