Director's Message

Dear Members and Friends, 

Thank you to the 550 members and friends who joined us for the Member pARTy celebrating Meant to Be Shared: Selections from the Arthur Ross Collection of European Prints at the Yale University Art Gallery. We were delighted to welcome several of our Yale University Art Gallery colleagues who organized the exhibition and made possible its loan to the Harn. If you are not already a museum member, I encourage you to take advantage of our free membership program in order to attend future Member pARTies and also to take advantage of reciprocal membership privileges at hundreds of other art museums throughout the US, Mexico and Canada.

In March we’re celebrating the five-year anniversary of the opening of the David A. Cofrin Asian Art Wing with a new exhibition titled Show Me the Mini. Tens of thousands of Harn visitors have experienced the marvelous arts of Asia since the opening of the Asian Wing. I hope you will visit the Asian Wing and gardens again soon to see some of your favorite works of art and to check out the new installation, which features many new acquisitions on view here for the first time.
