The Henry R. Luce Center for the Study of American Art
The Henry R. Luce Center for the Study of American Art, the American Wing’s open-storage and installation space, features wide-ranging collections not on view in the main galleries. The research opportunities afforded by this display make the Luce Center a focal point for education in the American Wing.
Objects in the Luce Center are arranged by material—painting, sculpture, furniture and woodwork, glass, ceramics, and metalwork—and within these categories are organized by form and chronology. With the exception of those objects particularly sensitive to light—such as textiles and works on paper—most of the reserve items are on constant view.
The Henry R. Luce Center for the Study of American Art is made possible by the Henry Luce Foundation, Inc. Generous support was also provided by The Pew Charitable Trusts. Additional grants were received from the National Endowments for the Humanities and the Arts.
Hours: The Luce Center is open to all visitors during the Museum's public hours.
Location: The Luce Center is located in the mezzanine of the American Wing.
