X: A Decade of Collecting, 2012-2022 is a survey of artworks acquired for the collection in the past decade. The chosen works demonstrate the breadth of collecting efforts and are a modest representation of the approximately 1,875 works that have entered Sheldon’s collection since 2012. Featured works include objects by Richard Avedon, Robert Colescott, Lois Dodd, Norman Lewis, Joyce Pensato, Alec Soth, Hank Willis Thomas, Robert Rauschenberg, Ursula von Rydingsvard, Andy Warhol, Stanley Whitney, and Sue Williams. The exhibition attempts to present a snapshot of how the museum’s collection continues to evolve.
