Scope and Content Note

This subseries currently is closed to researchers.

This subseries consists of documentation of exhibitions organized by the Museum in the last years of Anne d'Harnoncourt's tenure as its director and CEO. "'Shocking!' The Art and Fashion of Elsa Schiaparelli" (Sept. 28, 2003-Jan. 4, 2004); "Manet and the Sea" (Feb. 15-May 31, 2004); "Salvador Dalí" (Feb. 16-May 30, 2005); "Andrew Wyeth: Memory and Magic" (Mar. 29-July 16, 2006); and "Tesoros/Treasures/Tesouros: The Arts in Latin America, 1492-1820" (Sept. 20-Dec. 31, 2006) are the exhibitions with the largest volume of material. There are also a significant number of files pertaining to "Masterpieces from the Philadelphia Museum of Art: Impressionism and Modern Art" shown in 2007 at the Kyoto Municipal Museum of Art and Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Art.

The subseries also includes a small amount of preparatory materials for three exhibitions that opened after d'Harnoncourt's death in June 2008, processed under the "Later exhibitions" sub-subseries. These are "Calder Jewelry" (July 12-Nov. 2, 2008); "Gee's Bend: The Architecture of the Quilt" (Sept. 16-Dec. 14, 2008); and "Michelangelo Pistoletto: From One to Many, 1956-1974" (Nov. 2, 2010-Jan. 17, 2011). Both the Calder and Gee's Bend exhibitions were among the first held in the galleries of the Ruth and Raymond G. Perelman Building, which opened to the public in 2007 across from the Museum's main building atop Fairmount hill.
