Menil

Short Features

Rediscover the Menil Collection

The Menil’s growing collection, while not encyclopedic, spans the prehistoric era to the present day. Particular areas of strength include Byzantine art, West and Central African art, Surrealism, and 20th and 21st century American and European art. On September 22, 2018, the museum reopened with a year-long permanent collection initiative featuring many of the museum’s most well-known paintings and sculptures, as well as recent acquisitions and other works and promised gifts that have never before been on view in the museum. The installations will be changed several times over the course of the year-long period.

Go behind the scenes with Director Rebecca Rabinow and curators Michelle White and Paul R. Davis to learn more about the process of reinstalling an entire museum building over the course of several months.
