evolution of Salon du Musée into a celebration of DAM's
renowned collections and departments is an exciting development," said
the museum's Frederick and Jan Mayer Director Christoph Heinrich. "With
the Salon exhibition featuring works that represent the range of the
museum's collections, we have the opportunity to introduce Salon
du Musée guests to all the museum has to offer."
"Salon du Musée will feature internationally renowned
artists, many of whom are featured in the DAM's permanent collection.
Unlike the works in the museum's collection, the new works in Salon
du Musée will be available for sale," stated the Salon du
Musée Founder and contributing curator Natalie Rekstad-Lynn. "This
is an exciting prospect for many attendees and potential collectors as
many of the artists will be joining us at the event to talk about their
work and inspiration."
