For the new museum, the collection focus will include Asia and the Americas representing the region’s history and future intercultural exchange with the diverse cultures of these continents.

The exhibition will also provide a behind-the-scenes look into the ideation and planning process for the Crow Museum, including significant writing and original design conceived by the late Dr. Richard C. Brettell, who initiated plans for the Athenaeum and was integrally involved in the selection of Morphosis.
