Four Cantor galleries to temporarily close

Museum will launch new exhibit in September

Several of the second-floor galleries at Stanford University's Cantor Arts Center will temporarily close this month as the museum undergoes a major reinstallation of works drawn from its permanent collection, according to a press release.

The new exhibition, "Object Lessons: Art & Its Histories," will open Sept. 15 and will be organized around the Stanford art-history curriculum.

"The Cantor Arts Center is focused on what it means to experience and study art at a university art museum in the 21st century ... The new galleries will be designed for teaching and arranged to inspire critical interpretation and imaginative thinking by faculty, students, and museum visitors," the release states.

The affected galleries are: Robert Mondavi Family Gallery, Marie Stauffer Sigall Gallery, Oshman Family Gallery and Gallery for Early European Art and Ancient Greece & Rome. The rest of the museum's galleries remain open.
