Gifts of Art

Giving works of art to the Hood Museum ensures that they will be studied and enjoyed for generations to come.

Judith and Joseph Barker

Judith and Joseph Barker at the opening of the exhibition The Women of Shin Hanga: The Judith and Joseph Barker Collection of Japanese Prints. The Hood is deeply grateful to the Barkers for sharing their remarkable collection, whose promised gift to the museum advances a long tradition of alumni contributions to our Japanese art collection.

The Hood Museum of Art welcomes gifts of art that fit within our acquisition strategy and advance the museum’s teaching mission. Curators evaluate each proposed gift or bequest to ensure that all acquisitions complement the museum’s collection. To discuss making a gift of a work of art, please contact Kathy Hart, senior curator of collections and Barbara C. and Harvey P. Hood 1918 Curator of Academic Programming, (603) 646-2957.
