Collecting Contemporary Art features selections of works acquired in part or in whole
by the FUNd at ASU Art Museum, an endowment established by the Elizabeth Firestone
Graham Foundation. From monumental found-object installations to print portfolios of
etchings and lithographs, the international pieces share a current of experimentation
and an exploration of social and political concerns. The exhibition charts the Museum’s
collecting goals and exhibition history over the past 15 years, with significant
representation of Latin American and Latino artists, artists from Arizona and artists
in residence at the Museum.
