Upcoming and Ongoing

The Museum produces six to eight temporary exhibitions each year, in addition to its display of works from the permanent collection.


The Light of the Levant, which opens September 5, highlights the important role of the Levant region in early photography. In its broadest historical meaning, the area of the Levant, controlled by the Ottoman Empire during all or part of the nineteenth century, encompassed contemporary Greece, Turkey, and most of the Arab world.

Our permanent collection is arranged thematically to highlight similarities as well as differences across cultures, the reinstalled galleries represent steps in the ongoing journey toward a more inclusive and accessible presentation of the many stories art can tell.
