This new installation invites visitors, community members, artists, scholars, and advisors to join us in new conversations about America’s cultural heritage. Objects in these galleries document makers and consumers, bearing witness to people, encounters, and entanglements in American communities and illustrating a global story that crosses gender, racial, cultural, social, and geographic boundaries. As we consider Winterthur’s collection through new lenses, we travel beyond the borders of narratives previously told, exploring communities that have gone unacknowledged, and mapping new directions for inquiry and conversation.
