This exhibition highlights key works of art added to the IMA collections since 1988, placing special emphasis on how and why museum collections grow. The exhibition presents more than 135 works of art, many of which are displayed for the first time since joining the collection. Featured objects represent the rich diversity of the major collections, which includes African, Asian, American, European and Precolumbian art, works on paper, textiles and costumes, decorative arts and contemporary art. "A Decade of Treasures" also celebrates the gifts and purchases of the last ten years, and the spirit of philanthropy that enables the IMA's collection to grow.
