Over the next year, the Mint will be celebrating its permanent collection, including many works never-before seen in our galleries. Some of these objects have just arrived; some were donated over the decades. To kick it off, New Days, New Works presents gifts from all our collections—American, contemporary, craft, design and fashion, and decorative arts—to remind us of the broad diversity that defines the Mint Museum. Additionally, we are celebrating the donors whose generosity has enriched the museum, and the community. The Mint Museum serves our community; we are also made possible by that community. Each object in our collection came into this building as a result of the experiences and relationships of a multitude of people—including the donors who gave them to us. Individuals near and far, corporations, foundations, support groups: all are part of the Mint Museum “community,” an expansive and elastic word, and a meaningful one. We appreciate their generosity and the collection’s presence in our lives, even more after being away for so long.


For example, the Porter-Price Collection based in Columbia, South Carolina holds the most significant collection of Robert Ebendorf's work and this exhibition will feature three of those pieces. Ebendorf is a leader in the field of studio jewelry and metal work and is most known for his juxtaposition of found objects in unexpected ways. Another example are the Kuba textiles from the Wesley Mancini Collection. These textiles, made by the Kuba people of the Democratic Republic of Congo, are made for both utilitarian and ceremonial purposes featuring a unique cut-pile embroidery technique. From the estate of James E. Meyer is an extensive collection of Flight, Barr, and Barr Worchester porcelain. Made in the late 18th and early 19th century, almost 40 pieces of this porcelain is known for its rich color, finely rendered decoration, and elaborate gliding patterns will be represented in the gallery. One last example  is a group of American paintings from the bequest of Claude Adams from the Grace Phillips Adams Collection of Fine Art. Featured in this genre are artists Louis Remy Mignot, Severin Roesen, Gilbert Stuart, Henry Morland, George Inness, William Trost Richards, and Eugene Louis Boudin.
