Darielle Mason, The Stella Kramrisch Curator of Indian and Himalayan Art, organized an exhibition spanning five centuries of Indian art that featured some 90 paintings and drawings along with a selection of Indian metal vessels from the private collection of Alvin O. Bellak. The exhibited collection later joined the permanent holdings at the Philadelphia Museum of Art as a bequest from Dr. Bellak. The exhibition records are comprised of conservation files, installation and planning documents, educational and programming materials, and files relating to the exhibition catalogue. Files also document venues considered for a touring exhibition and the exhibition's travel to the Frist Center for the Visual Arts and the Seattle Art Museum in 2002 and 2003. In addition, records relating to Dr. Bellak, his collection, and his memorial services held in 2004 are also included in this subseries.
