NEW ACQUISITIONS 2017
On view through September 10, 2017: an exhibition of recently acquired works of art for the David Owsley Museum of Art highlights the medium of photography.

The selection showcases a substantial donation of contemporary photographs from a consortium of artists that includes several university professors. The total gift of 42 photographs by 13 artists is part of a much larger philanthropic campaign called The Museum Project. Established in 2012 by Robert von Sternberg and Darryl Curran, The Museum Project has donated more than 5,000 prints to public and university museums across the United States. The David Owsley Museum of Art is honored to join this group’s effort to enrich the photographic collections at American institutions ranging from the Ackland Art Museum at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill to the Yellowstone Art Museum in Billings, Montana.

The photos on display represent a wide variety of genres or types, including conceptual, landscape, figural, portrait, and historical subjects by Barry Anderson, Robert Fichter, Kenda North, Sheila Pinkel, Bonnie Schiffman. Robert von Sternberg, Melanie Walker, Todd Walker, and Nancy Webber. In addition to The Museum Project acquisitions, the current exhibition also features two industrial landscapes by Gunther Cartwright, a professor emeritus at the Rochester Institute of Technology with ties to Muncie.

The diversity of these images demonstrates the museum’s commitment to offering examples of a wide range of photographic styles and techniques in its teaching collection.
