In Passionate Pursuit: The Arlene and Harold Schnitzer Collection and Legacy will open October 18th, 2014, at the Portland Art Museum and run through January 11th, 2015. The exhibit explores the richly diverse collection of Arlene and the late Harold Schnitzer, their promised gift to the community, and the profound impact they have had as philanthropists on cultural patronage in Portland.
In Passionate Pursuit will explore themes of collecting, legacy, and civic engagement through a series of associated lectures and discussions, a fully illustrated color publication documenting the collection with an interview between the curator and the collector, essays by Museum curators, and a signature video program featuring Museum Director Brian Ferriso in conversation with Arlene Schnitzer. The exhibit is presented by Jordan D. Schnitzer and the Jordan Schnitzer Family Foundation in honor of his parents, Arlene and Harold Schnitzer.
