The LENTOS’s collections keep growing

Every year works of art are acquired to be integrated into the LENTOS’s holdings in connection with exhibitions, well established focal points of collecting and ongoing scholarly projects. These acquisitions are regularly supplemented by generous gifts and donations from artists and supporters of the Museum. Significant contributions are also made by the Friends of the LENTOS, the LENTOS Freunde.
