Curator's Choice : Making Faces, Here's Looking at You Keith!
May 16 - July 19, 2013
Museum of Art/WSU Gallery (no reception for this exhibition)
Our summer exhibition has alternated between showcasing regional artists and presenting selections from the Museum's permanent collection. This year The Museum of Art/WSU is proud to share a number of portraits from the permanent collection in the upcoming exhibition curated by the late Keith Wells.
Since 2004, Wells conducted his “dream job,” putting together numerous exciting and ground-breaking exhibitions. His final exhibition literally creates a portrait of the permanent collection whose origins began in the 1920s and 30s when Worth D. Griffin, WSU artist and professor, commissioned portraits of Native American leaders and pioneers.
These works became the very first acquisitions and helped establish the Museum of Art/WSU. Since then the collection has grown immensely. From paintings of University dignitaries to screen prints of Marilyn Monroe, the collection is a significant part of our artistic legacy.
