Newark Museum of Art Educational Loan Collection Auction To Be Hosted By Remember When Antiques and Estate Sales, LLC

Remember When Antiques and Estate Sales, LLC, in collaboration with The Newark Museum of Art, proudly announces the Newark Museum of Art Educational Loan Collection Auction.

“The Newark Museum of Art was founded by Director John Cotton Dana at the Newark Public Library in 1909. To this day, the century plus old institution is New Jersey’s largest museum and home to many fine collections. When the Newark Museum of Art first reached out to us, we were absolutely humbled and honored with the opportunity to represent the museum’s collection. And now, with the event officially open for bidding, we couldn’t be more excited to offer this extensive collection to the public. All proceeds from the sale will benefit the museum’s educational programming,” said Ed Frischkorn, Operations Manager.
