From Rye to Raphael: The Walters Story

From Rye to Raphael: The Walters Story brings together for the first time an extraordinary group of art and artifacts to illustrate the intriguing stories behind the magnificent gift to the City from the Walters family. The dramatic new installation features 200 works chosen for their beauty and craftsmanship as well as never-before-seen Walters family photographs and historic material culled from the museum’s archives. At the end of the installation, which celebrates the 80th anniversary of the opening of the Walters Art Museum, visitors are invited to consider the impact of giving on our community today.

From Rye to Raphael: The Walters Story has been generously supported by the Richard C. von Hess Foundation; the Women’s Committee of the Walters Art Museum; Cynthia Redmond Mead; PNC—celebrating its 147-year relationship with the Walters and our shared commitment to Baltimore; Walters Family; Kathleen and William Farley; and other anonymous donors.
