PULLMAN – The WSU Museum of Art will be showcasing its recent acquisitions and some classic favorites from the permanent collection in the upcoming Curator’s Choice exhibition May 18 through July 2. A public reception will be held at 2 p.m. June 6 and will feature the Summer Solstice concert, an annual concert featuring the WSU Solstice Wind Quintet.
“This year’s Curator’s Choice exhibit consists of many new additions to the collection mingled with some of our standard pieces. Recent acquisitions are always a great way to illustrate the commitment of our generous contributors and the constant growth of the collection,” said Keith Wells, curator.
“We are very excited to present a sampling of recent gifts to the permanent collection. With only one gallery, we are limited in what we can share with our community, and often feel as though our collection is a rich but almost secret treasure. Of particular note is a selection of photographs from the recent gift of 150 works from the Andy Warhol Foundation,” said Chris Bruce, director.
“Also featured will be architectural models and plans by Taiji Miyasaka’s third year architecture students, of an expanded Museum of Art that could make room for the Warhol’s and Chihuly’s and other gems. Put the new acquisitions together with these imaginative expansion possibilities, and you have a sense of what our Museum of the future could be,” Bruce said.
The Museum of Art is located on Wilson Road across from Martin Stadium in the Fine Arts Center on the WSU campus. Summer gallery hours are Tuesday – Saturday, Noon – 4 p.m., closed Sunday and Monday.
