In addition to special exhibits the museum has two ongoing exhibits. Eastern Seals is Pierpont Morgan’s collection of carved seals, some of the earliest examples of their kind in the world, dating from the late fourth millennium B.C. The seals are among the smallest pictorial objects ever produced—often just one inch in size—intricately detailed by sculptors who carved them with simple tools in semiprecious stones. A larger-scale statue from the ancient Near East is on view to demonstrate the close relationship between seals and other major artworks.
The Morgan–Renzo Piano Building Workshop Project is an historical survey of the museum site from the 1850s through today. The expansion project of Renzo Piano is represented by drawings, models, and photographs.
