The Metropolitan Museum of Art Loan

The Metropolitan Museum of Art's Department of Medieval Art and The Cloisters has lent the Bellarmine Museum of Art twenty-four spectacular objects, which span from the Bronze Age to the 17th century in Europe. These loans, which will be on view for periods ranging between two and four years, enable the museum to provide its many constituencies with invaluable opportunities to engage with a broad array of original artifacts. This collaboration also speaks to the high standards of professionalism to which the Bellarmine holds itself.
