Images of Community: Highlights from the Julia J. Norrell Collection
January 29, 2013 - April 14, 2013
The pieces included in this special exhibition were all selected from the Norrell Collection, an important part of the Morris Museum’s permanent collection. Community—as it is reflected in a sense of shared interests, beliefs, pursuits, needs, locality, or region—is a theme that pervades the Norrell Collection. As former President Bill Clinton noted in his foreword to Common Ground: Discovering Community in 150 Years of Art, “The art that Judy collects is a reflection both of what she believes and of her perception of the world. She knows that there is always beauty in truth—even if that truth momentarily seems harsh. She understands that our life experiences—churchgoing, work, a loved one’s funeral, our rituals—draw us closer together rather than move us further apart.”
