Spotlight With Gary Vikan: More Than Just A Name

If you decided to found a museum, as a collector you’d have to make significant decisions—what to collect, how much can be spent, what are other collectors grabbing up?

Who are Walters, Rubens, Ford, Duke, and Bourne?

Senior Curator at Large and Director of Walters Archives (Emeritus) William Johnston and Walters Director Gary Vikan will discuss complex histories that expose the beauty, drama and behind-the-scenes aspects of many works (and names) in the Walters’ collection.
