Domino’s Pizza Collection, Ann Arbor, Michigan
Models & Artifacts
This page continues my coverage of the Domino’s Pizza Collection as displayed in summer 2017.
In May 2018 Sotheby’s announced that key windows would be sold at auction that month, and that 60 other items had been sold directly to the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. It appears this collection has been gutted, but it cannot be confirmed until the list of Met acquisitions is released or the remaining collection (if any) in Ann Arbor is visibly reviewed. The entire 6-page Sotheby’s press release is available on my website for viewing or download.
Photographed on June 14 and 22, 2017.
