Join fellow members for a tour of Delight in Discovery: The Global Collections of Lloyd Cotsen with exhibition curator Lyssa C. Stapleton. A prolific collector, Lloyd Cotsen (1929–2017) assembled thousands of textile fragments, garments, and other artworks that reflected his admiration for indigenous cultures and vanishing artistic traditions. His ultimate goal, however, was to create opportunities for a wider audience to appreciate 3,000 years of human creativity. Celebrating a major gift from Margit Sperling Cotsen and the estate of Lloyd Cotsen, this exhibition brings together global treasures gathered over a lifetime.
