> DESCRIPTION

The Weatherspoon Art Museum first began collecting works of art in the 1940s. Since then, it has continued to enhance the quality and distinction of its collections through the acquisition of important works of art by gift, bequest, and even in times of economic challenges, by purchase. Besides caring for, preserving, and augmenting this outstanding collection, the Museum strives to make it readily accessible to the public. This summer, to fulfill that core mission, the Weatherspoon will feature recently acquired work by Nick Cave, Anne Chu, Helen Frankenthaler, Leon Kroll, Judy Pfaff, Edward Ruscha, Fred Tomaselli, and Jeff Whetstone, among many others.

The exhibition will highlight pieces acquired between 2009 and 2011 that have not yet been exhibited publicly. Comprised of sculpture, painting, works on paper, and photography, the assembly of work underscores the energy and diverse prongs of the Weatherspoon’s permanent collection, and in particular, the museum’s dedication to representing the art of its time. Also underscoring the exhibition is the spirit of adventure and risk taking that has long been a hallmark of the Weatherspoon Art Museum.
