The Museums collections encompass a wide variety of objects acquired by the University of Delaware from 1917 to the present day. Museums Collections Focus is a series of online exhibitions that provides a bite-sized introduction to the diversity of these holdings, from Renaissance prints and ceramics by Indigenous makers to mineral specimens and contemporary photography. Organized by theme or medium, these focused exhibitions offer new ways to engage with objects in the collections.
