Exhibitions

The Dahesh Museum of Art continues its active exhibition program as a museum without walls. It is pleased to share its works of art to sister institutions exploring the subjects and artistic forms of the 19th century. The Museum’s curatorial staff has organized a group of exhibitions on specific themes, listed elsewhere on the website, that are readily available on request. In addition, the Museum can craft a complete exhibition or add significant works to one in the process of organization. And, of course, the Museum has become a source for the loan of individual works from its unique collection to other institutions developing significant projects.
