Collecting with Intent: The Purpose and Impact of Building a Collection

Many motivations can lie behind the practice of collecting art, from personal passions or aesthetic interests to supporting contemporary artists or continuing a family legacy. Furthermore, collecting can be driven by a desire to affect change, both within and outside of the world of art.
