When the Greenwich Library reached out to residents to loan works for its 1956 art exhibition “Greenwich Collects,” it didn’t just get some pretty landscapes and a still life or two.
Town art lovers filled the space with works by world-renowned masters such as René Magritte and Pablo Picasso, Diego Rivera and Jackson Pollock.
It was just one in a long line of significant exhibitions at the library’s Flinn Gallery, which will celebrate its 90th anniversary season this year. The new season’s festivities begin with “Looking Forward, Looking Back,” the first of six exhibitions the all-volunteer Flinn Gallery Committee will mount between Sept. 6 and June 19.
