The Day – From CIA to the ‘Davis Sky’: A look at the artists and works featured in the Mystic Museum of Art’s permanent collection

Some things have changed at the Mystic Museum of Art since it closed in March as part of the state’s COVID-19 shutdown. A visitors’ service window has been created, for instance, and the galleries have new air purification systems. Everyone wears a mask and social distances.

And now, after the museum reopened in late September, it is showcasing one of its great assets: its permanent collection.

The “Reintroducing the Permanent Collection” exhibition, in fact, boasts the largest number of pieces the museum has ever displayed from its collection at one time — 141 works in all.

(There are nearly 250 pieces in the collection, but there wasn’t room to include every one in the current show.)

The works run through three galleries, and the galleries are categorized by time period, showing the evolution of art styles in general — and the evolution within the careers of individual artists as well.
