Before founding the Grey Art Gallery at NYU in 1975, Abby Weed Grey spent fifteen years traveling the world as an art collector. A self-proclaimed “dyed-in-the-wool Midwesterner,” Abby’s travels took her far from her home state of Minnesota, most often to the countries of the Middle East.
This StoryMap was created by the Grey’s Graduate Intern Katelyn Wattendorf as part of a New York University Brine Digital Humanities fellowship.
