Weatherspoon Art Museum in Greensboro, NC, Shows City's Art Collections
The Weatherspoon Art Museum at The University of North Carolina at Greensboro, NC, is pleased to present the exhibition Inquiring Eyes: Greensboro Collects Art, on view through Dec. 12, 2010.
The Weatherspoon has played a major role in educating, encouraging, and promoting the community's cultural growth and, just as the museum's collection has developed over the years, a good number of private collections have grown into important local resources as well. Divided into seven themes, this survey exhibition features impressive artwork from the 20th and 21st centuries. While some artists may be familiar to viewers, due to name recognition or having been featured in past Weatherspoon programs, others will be fresh delights.
The exhibition features 111 artists, 128 works - from 52 private Greensboro art collections.
Artists with works in the exhibit include: Berenice Abbott, Ansel Adams, Philip Kwame Apagya, Milton Avery, Walter Barker, Julian Barrow, Georg Baselitz, David Loren Bass, Pinky Bass and Clara Couch, Romare Bearden, Lynda Benglis, Thomas Hart Benton, Louise Bourgeois, Warren Brandt, Robert Broderson, Judith K.
