June 25 through September 3, 2017
Trexler Hall and Rodale, Scheller, and Fowler Galleries


With a passion for art’s aesthetic, emotional, and spiritual impact, and an even greater passion for sharing it, Philadelphia resident Paul Kania’s collection reveals the eclectic and personal nature of his generous gifts to the Museum. Selected from the more than 250 works he has donated since 1996, A Collector’s Cabinet gave a sense of the breadth of Kania’s contributions, from 19th-century wood engraving and painting to 21st-century lithography and photographs.
