Collection Gallery

Celebrating objects for daily use and aesthetic admiration, the Moore Gallery contains ceramics, silver, glassware, furniture, paintings, prints, and art glass from the sixteenth century to the present day.

The gallery is named for Harlan E. and Theresa E. Moore, collectors and connoisseurs of decorative arts who gave the museum a portion of their collection of primarily eighteenth- and nineteenth-century European and American ceramics and glass. The initial donation of 300 objects was made in 1967, during the directorship of Dean Allen S. Weller and the associate directorship of Muriel B. Christison.

After the initial artwork donation, the Moore family contributed funds to support future acquisitions and maintenance of the decorative arts collection at Krannert Art Museum through the Moore Charitable Trust.
