$5 – Buy now

seen-xvi-2-coverSEEN Journal XVI: 2 goes behind the scenes of several renowned—and some lesser known—private and institutional art collections to discover how they evolved and what motivates the collectors. As it turns out, collecting is not just for an elite few, but rather a healthy practice that enriches our whole community. In the essays included, terms like stewardship, caretaking, conservation, community, and story appear again and again. As the history and curation of each collection is explained, the warm affection for the treasures described radiates from the page.
