Seven Years of Acquisitions, 2013–2020
May 23 to August 29, 2020, Jundt Galleries and Arcade Gallery
In celebration of its 25th anniversary, the Jundt Art Museum has organized a special permanent collection display. Thanks to the benevolence of many donors, the vigilance of museum staff members, and the museum’s relationship with collectors and galleries, the collections of the Jundt Art Museum remain constantly growing, improving, and expanding in support of Gonzaga’s Jesuit and humanistic mission. The function of collecting represents one essential attribute of a healthy, active academic art museum. Seven Years of Acquisitions, 2013–2020 features a sampling of more than 100 works from the wide range of objects the museum has obtained since the appointment of Dr. Paul Manoguerra as director/curator in 2013. The exhibition celebrates the donors who have been generous to the art museum over the last seven years, and includes works of art by Ansel Adams, Harold Balazs, George Bellows, Alexander Calder, Marc Chagall, Corita Kent, Dorothea Lange, Andy Warhol, and many others.
