Invited: Celebrating 5 Years
September 24, 2019 - January 31, 2019
This exhibition of approximately 30 artworks provides the opportunity for us to celebrate our first five years by offering a unique view of our collection. From OSU President Hargis and the First Cowgirl to members of our Art Advisory Council, Art Advocates and the Museum Advisory Board, this exhibition welcomes more than 23 guest curators to select pieces from the permanent collection. Since the inception of the Museum in 2010, the collection has grown from approximately 800 works of art already collected through the Department of Art, Graphic Design and Art History to almost 5,000 objects in the collection. Major gifts from many private collectors and artist foundations have found their way into our collection. The exhibition spans the breadth and depth of all these gifts. The selected works feature a brief paragraph about the artwork, why it was selected and the guest curator’s take on the importance of the OSU Museum of Art and the work of art.
