John De Andrea Sculpture Returns from Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza, Madrid

Senior Curator Wendy Blazier just returned from a whirlwind trip to Madrid, accompanying our John DeAndrea sculpture, Released, back from the Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza where it had recently been exhibited.  Unbeknownst to many, Senior Curators and Registrars get exciting fringe benefits, one of them being trips abroad.  Of course, Wendy went to ensure the sanctity of our collection, but she still had a little fun on the trip.

Released has been put back into storage but the other piece from our collection that is in the midst of its world tour, Campeo San Cassiano, Italy by Maurice Prendergast, is now featured at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston.  It is part of the exhibition Prendergast in Italy that debuted at the Williams College Museum of Art in Williamstown, Massachusetts and traveled to the Peggy Guggenheim Collection in Venice before returning to Texas. In May, the exhibition will close in Texas and it will return home. We will reinstall it in the Dr. and Mrs. John J. Mayers Gallery on the second-floor west wing.

It is such an honor to loan artwork to such great institutions as these. The John DeAndrea sculpture especially, since we do not normally display her in our galleries. She made an appearance for our Shock of the Real: Photorealism Revisited  exhibition last year, but only for the opening nights.  

This is why it is significant when a museum such as the Thyssen-Bornemisza, whose focus is comtemporary artists, borrows and displays our treasures.

What is a CVV Code?

CVV2 is a security measure for credit cards. Since a CVV2 number is listed on your credit card, but is not stored anywhere, the only way to know the correct CVV2 number for your credit card is to physically have possession of the card itself. All VISA, Discover, MasterCard and American Express cards made in America in the past 5 years or so have a CVV2 number. However Diners Club does not use a security code.

How to find your CVV2 number:
On a VISA, Discover or MasterCard, please turn your card over and look in the signature strip. You will find (either the entire 16-digit string of your card number, OR just the last 4 digits), followed by a space, followed by a 3-digit number. That 3-digit number is your CVV2 number.(See below)

VISA, Discover & MasterCard

On American Express Cards, the CVV2 number is a 4-digit number that appears above the end of your card number. (See below)
