An American Taste: The Rohman Collection was a 2011 exhibit at the Sheldon Museum of Art which says: " In summer 2005, the Rohman's were the first family to be honored with a named gallery at the Sheldon Museum of Art. But the Rohman's have also enriched the region's cultural heritage in less visible ways too numerous to count. An American Taste: The Rohman Collection pays tribute to their generosity to, and legacy at, the Sheldon, which has taken the form of a special, unparalleled, contribution: their art collection." Viewers may download the exhibition brochure.

As We See It: The Collection of Gail and Ernst von Metzsch is a 2016-17 exhibit at New Britain Museum of American Art, which says: "As long-time residents of Massachusetts, Gail and Ernst von Metzsch have consistently been drawn to local artists such as George Nick, Paul Rahilly, Janet Monafo, Steve Hawley, Ben Aronson, and Ed Stitt, among others, whose paintings reflect their daily lives, experiences, and environments. Today, the collection reflects a multitude of styles and subjects best described as "contemporary realism," and includes naturalistic landscapes, still lifes, portraits, and interiors, as well as colorful, evocative abstractions."

This Is Your Art:  The Legacy of Ellen Johnson is a 2017 exhibit at the Allen Memorial Art Museum which says: "For nearly 40 years, from 1939 until her retirement in 1977, Johnson championed modern and contemporary art at Oberlin, first as an art librarian, and later as a professor, unofficial curator, and prolific writer. Paying homage to Johnson's immense legacy, This Is Your Art will feature - in the gallery named for her - more than 50 paintings, sculptures, objects, and works on paper that found their way into the Allen's permanent collection through Johnson's prescience, intelligence, persistence, and generosity, as well as through the admiration and magnanimity she engendered in artists and patrons who knew her."
