Over the last ten years, the staff of the Springfield Museums has carried out a thorough review of its permanent collections held at the Michele and Donald D'Amour Museum of Fine Arts and the George Walter Vincent Smith Art Museum. One of the outcomes of this review has been the award of a planning grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities to study the gallery installations at the GWV Smith Art Museum with the goal of making the collection more relevant and meaningful to the community we serve.
