Higgins Armory Collection into the new displays, something that has me especially excited about the project. When I was curator at the Higgins Armory (for fifteen years!), I never had access to civilian objects to round out the arms and armor story we were telling. WAM in the meantime didn’t have knightly objects to complement their artworks. So it’s a great match, and I’m delighted to have the opportunity to play matchmaker. Look for the new galleries in late 2016—and come visit our Chapter House from a medieval French monastery, which remains on view during the renovations.
