MUNCIE, Indiana — The David Owsley Museum of Art (DOMA) presents a special opportunity to view nearly 100 works of art new to the museum’s collection, including works from Africa, Asia, North America, Europe, and the Pacific Islands. “Recent Acquisitions: Connecting to the Past, Committing to the Future” is on view from September 19 through December 20, 2019.
In addition to spanning the globe, the highlighted works represent art in a vast array of mediums — from sculpture, drawings, prints, photographs, paintings, and ceramics to ritual objects and masks. The exhibition includes notable works by Ruth Duckworth, Frank Gehry, Zaha Hadid, Marsden Hartley, Wassily Kandinsky, Conrad Marca-Relli, Pablo Picasso, James Rosati, Piat-Joseph Sauvage, Elisabetta Sirani, Swoon, and Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec.
“Celebrating Ball State’s Centennial last year was an invigorating opportunity for us to visit our collection in depth,” said Robert La France, director of DOMA and curator of the exhibition. “This exhibition continues to honor our rich past by showcasing exciting connections between new acquisitions and past exhibitions, and at the same time, it expands DOMA’s universal collection in diverse ways for future study and enjoyment.”
The exhibition at DOMA is free and open to the public.
