In the largest gallery, Honoring Karen Johnson Boyd: Collecting In-Depth at Home and at RAM gains added dimension by exchanging 17 baskets, wall pieces, and sculptures for works of similar sizes. Large and small-scale figurative works on paper have been traded out for large abstract compositions in Honoring Karen Johnson Boyd: A Multi-Dimensional Approach, which echoes both Mrs. Boyd’s and RAM’s approach to juxtaposing images and objects. In the Windows on Fifth Gallery, Raise Your Glass (Goblets) features over 100 glass goblets donated to RAM by Alan and Barbara Boroff and the Kohler Foundation, Inc.
