The Morris at Twenty
July 7, 2012 - September 16, 2012
This exhibition emphasized acquisitions made over the past ten years—an unusually rich period marked especially by the addition of the Julia J. Norrell Collection, with particular strength in folk art and photography. The bequest of the Larry Connatser Art Trust added the work of an important contemporary Georgia artist, and purchases made through the Passailaigue Art Acquisitions Fund further enriched the permanent collection. Finally, the support of the museum affiliate groups the Morris Collectors and the Friends of African American Art also made important acquisitions possible. The recent purchase of a painting by Brian Rutenberg, displayed for the first time, was made possible by the Morris Collectors.
