Collected: New Permanent Collection Gallery

California Museum of Photography at UCR ARTS

 

July 7, 2018 - July 28, 2019

 

The California Museum of Photography is completing its first holistic reinstallation of its permanent collection gallery in over 20 years. Moving from its longtime location on the back of the first floor to its new home on the third floor, the new permanent collection gallery will now feature regularly rotating selections from the collection.


The inaugural installation considers the concept of collecting. This exhibition examines the first photograph collectors, people in the 19th century who assembled images of loved ones or photographs of interest, and also features several modern collectors whose gifts helped to shape the California Museum of Photography’s collection. The museum’s collection has been made possible through donations from collectors, both the descendants of early photographic collectors and those who collect photographs and cameras today. These gifts have helped the museum expand the breadth and depth of its holdings, and have contributed to the museum’s success.
