The Museum's "Policy Statement" shapes the future of the collection

The Kimbell's formal “Policy Statement,” adopted by the Kimbell Art Foundation’s board of directors in 1966, defined the scope of the Museum’s collection in terms of both quality and breadth. It states that the Museum’s aim is to “form collections of the highest possible aesthetic quality, derived from any and all periods in man’s history, and in any medium or style” and insists that the Museum’s goal be acquisitions of “definitive excellence, not size of collection.”
