About the Exhibition

Learn a bit about the PAAM Collection and the PAAM Staff in one fell swoop! Staff Picks: Selections from the PAAM Collection features work from the PAAM Collection that has been hand-selected by the members of the PAAM Staff. The opening for this exhibition is a potluck: guests are asked to bring a dish large enough to share with six people or a $7 donation.

Each staff member selected one piece and provided a response to why they selected it, whether it be a personal, professional, or intrinsic reaction to the work. The result is an array of media and subjects as diverse as the members of the staff. Working tirelessly to ensure the continued success and growth of PAAM, the staff was eager and excited to work so closely with the collection and to select work that spoke directly to them. PAAM is proud to host numerous exhibitions each year, ranging from historically essential to ground-breaking contemporary artists. The inclusion of a Staff Picks exhibition is important to showcase more of the PAAM collection while providing members of the staff with a sense of propriety and ownership over the work which they protect and uphold.
