Artwork on Loan

The Zimmerli's works can be seen all over the world, as the museum frequently loans art from its collection to national and international exhibitions organized by other universities and museums. Organizations interested in borrowing works from the collection may review the Zimmerli's Outgoing Loan Guidelines before contacting the museum. 

These exhibitions are great opportunities to show samplings from the Zimmerli's collections in other states and countries and to help viewers better understand groupings of works from a particular artist or themes. 

Currently, work from the museum collection can be enjoyed at locations in the following exhibitions.
