Robinson collection reinstallation

The University of Mississippi Museum has undertaken a major reinstallation of the David M. Robinson Memorial Collection.  The Collection is one of the most extensive Greco-Roman collections in the south, including approximately 2,200 Greek and Roman artifacts ranging from sculpture and pottery to coins, inscription, architectural fragments and more.  The reinstallation project will introduce a contemporary redesign of the collection in four 1930s neoclassical museum gallery spaces and will allow more of the collection to be on display.

The older wing of the University of Mississippi Museum will house the new installation of the Robinson Colection.

The project commenced in the Summer of 2013, but the Museum is still in need of resources and partners to complete the world-class reinstallation the collection deserves.  If you’d like to learn more about the reinstallation project or make a donation to the David M. Robinson Memorial Collection Conservation Fund, please contact Ms. Melanie Munns, Special Project Manager (mjmunns@olemiss.edu), Ms Marti Funke, Collections Manager (mfunke@olemiss.edu) or Ms. Angela Barlow, Development Officer (ambarlow@olemiss.edu).
