Present Generations: Creating the Scantland Collection of the Columbus Museum of Art
June 26, 2021-May 22, 2022
Columbus Museum of Art

Featuring work by some of the most exciting and thought-provoking artists practicing today, Present Generations comprises the first wave of promised gifts that will inaugurate the Columbus Museum of Art’s Scantland Collection. With bold paintings as well as photographic and sculptural installations, the works in Present Generations show the exuberance of contemporary art practice as it also grapples with urgent and underlying social concerns.

The Scantland Collection is one of the most active young private collections of contemporary visual art in North America. From its position in Columbus, Ohio, the Collection is committed to a global perspective on the creative energies of this moment; its intention is to form an evolving and wide-ranging picture of art in the mid-21st century. With a growing list of promised gifts to the Columbus Museum of Art, the Scantland Collection ensures that its ambitious program to collect the art of the present will remain part of its community for generations to come.
