Views of the Collection: Art With a Point of View


On Sunday, Feb. 25, 2001, the Huntsville Museum of Art will hold a Grand Opening for Views of the Collection: Art With a Point of View at 1 p.m. in the Pei Ling Chan Gallery. On view through July 22, 2001, Art With a Point of View will present 17 works from the Museum's permanent collection by 14 contemporary American artists who convey a uniquely personal outlook in their art.

In conjunction with the Grand Opening, the Museum will also rededicate the Chan Gallery as a permanent location for showcasing works from the Museum's own collection. The Museum's treasures will be featured in a series of extended Views of the Collection exhibitions that will highlight particular aspects of the Museum's holdings.

For Art With a Point of View, the Museum is partnering with Enhanced Realities, a local high-tech firm, to provide interactive learning stations that will accompany selected works in the gallery. These multi-media, touch-screen information systems will feature critiques by art students from Butler High School and New Century High School, commentary on the works by the artists who created them, and other information that the viewer can access at his/her own pace. The Huntsville Museum of Art is proud to be the first museum in the country to incorporate this brand new information system into its galleries.
