The Albertine Monroe-Brown Study-Storage Gallery

Visible or “open” art storage galleries are located on the second floor of Alumni Memorial Hall, in the Albertine Monroe-Brown Study-Storage Gallery, and in the Education Center on the lower level of the new Frankel Wing, adjacent to the Helmut Stern Auditorium. Designed to give visitors visual access to hundreds of objects in close proximity, the Open Storage Galleries reveal the wide range of UMMA’s collections of nearly 19,000 objects. Nearly one thousand objects from the collections are presented in secure, well-lit, glass-fronted cabinets—providing ample opportunity for close viewing and visual comparison, as well as the thrill of slipping behind the scenes into a private treasure house of art. Areas of special depth on view in the Open Storage Galleries include Chinese and Korean ceramics, Chinese snuff bottles and netsuke, Indian bronzes, Arts and Crafts ceramics, and art glass by Louis Comfort Tiffany.
