Jackson Collects: Wild Selections from Private Collections

Oct. 27, 2017 – Apr. 15, 2018

This exhibit brings in rarely seen work from private collections, giving visitors a sense of the amazing artwork in existence right here in our valley. Approximately 20 works are featured, including wildlife and landscape scenes. Complementing the borrowed artwork will be recent and promised gifts, which will help us talk about how the Museum builds its own collection. Works like the one pictured here will be featured.

Jackson Collects is generously sponsored by: Thomas Gilcrease Foundation, The Lightner Sams Foundation, Inc., Tally & Bill Mingst, Gloria & Bill Newton, Marieluise Hessel-Artzt & Edwin Artzt, and Betsy & Thomas Grainger.
