OUMA Collects: Selections from the Permanent Collection

OUMA Collects: Selections from the Permanent Collection 2019-08-27T11:05:55-04:00

September 13 – December 15, 2019

This exhibition highlights selected works from the permanent collection of the Oglethorpe University Museum of Art that align with current course offerings. Recent acquisitions on view include works by artists Romare Bearden and Raphael Soyer.

The permanent collection of OUMA is unique in that it has been comprised almost entirely of works of art that have been donated rather than by purchase.

The works on view reveal the broad diversity of the museum’s permanent collection, ranging from 14th century Japanese sculpture to contemporary abstract works of the twenty-first century.

Organized by John Daniel Tilford, Curator of Collections, OUMA
