Since 1992, the Museum has presented more than 300 exhibitions; 300 symposia, lectures, or other programs; and published more than 30 monographs or catalogues. The museum hosts between 2 and 5 unique exhibitions each season, with an average of 12 exhibitions presented over the course of a typical year that ranges from solo,survey, vintage, thematic and various forms of retrospectives.
