What happens when a museum has a renovation and needs to store its treasured pieces for months or even longer? What happens when an artist of import dies and leaves a surplus of beautiful works behind?

Art Bridges, a nonprofit organization funded by Alice Walton, has the answers in its collection loan partnership, which launched its pilot phase in June 2021.
