New to You: Permanent Collection Objects on Display for the First Time
Jundt Galleries and Arcade Gallery, August 27, 2022 to January 7, 2023
Museums typically only have a small fraction of the objects they care for on display at any one time, and the Jundt Art Museum at Gonzaga University is no exception. This special exhibition highlights over sixty works of art which have never been on display since the Jundt Art Museum opened in 1995. In some cases, the museum has only recently acquired the object and has yet to place it on exhibition. In other instances, due to the nature of operating as a small museum with rotating shows, the work of art has yet to be featured. New to You includes works of art by both historical and contemporary artists, and introduces visitors to some of the museum’s prints, paintings, ceramics, and sculptures for the very first time.
