Join us for Second Thursday as The InLiquid Gallery presents an exhibition solely dedicated to the collection of Caroline Dunlop Millett, examining how an art collection takes shape over time. Throughout her lifetime Millett engaged with creative talent within her social and intellectual circles. She built a truly unique collection from highly accomplished visual artists whose renown has grown over time. Among the many notable artists in her collection, this exhibition will feature Caroline's personal favorites: Walter Darby Bannard, Chuck Connelly, and Osvaldo Romberg. In addition, small works by George Van Millett, Urusula Sternberg, and Peggy Gyulai will also be shown.

A life-long art lover, Millett’s collection reflects her personal and professional journey from her roots in the Midwest to her multifaceted career as a U.S. diplomat in Brazil, as an interior designer, and as a historic preservationist--for which she received a commendation from President Ford in 1976. In her book, Redesigning Design: Your Home As Art, she presents the question: would you like to make your personal environment a work of art?
