One of the extraordinary results of ArtPick is that many private donors have often purchased their favorite curatorial choices and then donated these pieces to the Museum. This is possible because all of the curatorial choices are regarded as worthy of admission to the permanent collection.

While the following works were not the ArtPick winning selections, they subsequently were acquired as a direct result of ArtPick events.
