Fluxus

The Hood Museum of Art is home to the George Maciunas Memorial Collection, established by then–museum director Jan van der Marck in 1978 to honor Maciunas, the Lithuanian-born organizer of the international Fluxus movement who had died that year. The Hood's holdings, which now reach beyond that original collection, includes over five hundred works by the international consortium of artists who were affiliated with the Fluxus movement in the 1960s and 1970s
