"Recent Acquisitions" April 2023 to January 2024

This exhibition features a selection of objects acquired by the Museum from 2019 to 2022. None of these items have been  on public display before. While the timespan and subject matter varies, each piece supports the Museum’s mission to educate the Brigade and the general public. They range in date from 1630 to 2020 and depict everything from colonial Virginia to the First Gulf War to the USNA Chapel dome. The exhibition also includes four paintings that the Museum recently had professionally conserved to remove old varnish, repair small tears, and restore them to their original appearance.
