The Living Legacy of Clara S. Peck: Rockwell Collection Hero

From September 23, 2023 to January 28, 2024

Location: Spotlight Gallery (Floor 1M)

One of The Rockwell Museum’s favorite philanthropists is Clara S. Peck, whose gifts continue to shape our collections.

In 1983, Peck gifted several artworks from her own collection to the museum, as well as funds that allow us to acquire new works of art. As you explore The Rockwell Museum’s collections, you will notice the Peck name everywhere with artworks labeled “Bequest of Clara S. Peck” and “Clara S. Peck Fund.”

Chosen from the nearly 600 works of art purchased with the “Clara S. Peck Fund,” this exhibition highlights and explores how this generous gift from The Rockwell Museum’s favorite philanthropists has, and continues, to shape our collection. Her donation complemented the original Rockwell Family collection and gave The Rockwell Museum the chance to grow and evolve.
