Fuller Craft Museum is pleased to present Face Value: Portraits from the Arthur S. Goldberg Collection. This multimedia exhibition celebrates one of the most important genres in art history with an array of portraiture from the collection of Arthur S. Goldberg. Goldberg, based in Chestnut Hill, is known for his figurative artwork collection, and this collaborative endeavor draws from these works with a specific compositional focus on the head and shoulders. Featuring a range of materials—from ceramic and resin to painting and drawing—Face Value celebrates the powerful magic of portraiture, the creative achievements of contemporary artists working in the genre, and a collector’s impact on the arts community.
Face Value includes works on loan from Goldberg alongside objects from Fuller Craft Museum’s permanent collection previously donated by the collector.
