Through a Director’s Eyes: The Collection of Robert “Mac” Doty presents a range of material from our former director's collection: correspondence with artists; original works of art; out of print exhibition catalogs; and some rare books. Check out anewly acquired Neil Welliver print and some small scale works by Richard Anuskiewicz too.

Robert MacIntyre Doty served as the Director of the Currier Museum of Art from 1977 to 1987. He was instrumental in developing the Museum’s photography collection and focusing acquisition efforts on folk art and contemporary works. The majority of his collection of papers was donated to the museum in 2001. Additional material was donated by his widow Joan Doty in 2014. This is the first time this archival material has been accessible to researchers.
