In addition to providing the founding gift for Krannert Art Museum, Ellnora D. Krannert and Herman Krannert donated many artworks, including this painting, to this institution recognized for both its collections and its activities that invite the public to learn more about other cultures and the creative process. This work by François Boucher is a model for a section of a large tapestry.

This 2017 exhibition used Barcelona as a case study to examine how European cities have been transforming themselves since the 1980s and how unexpected or unaddressed 21st-century problems are affecting urban development. A multimedia display overlaid various maps and solutions onto a 3D topographical representation of Barcelona, while video and captioned posters gave additional details about interactions between the natural and built environments, offered background on contemporary urban issues, and assessed how other metropolitan regions had adapted.
