September 10 through November 4, 2007



 

Wall text for Selections from the Hillstrom Museum of Art Collection

The Hillstrom Museum of Art is pleased to present the fourteen works on view in this exhibition, which is being shown concurrently with The Art Students League of New York: Highlights from the Permanent Collection. Many of the works in the Hillstrom Collection are by artists who studied or taught at the Art Students League, and these selections highlight that connection. Most of the paintings, drawings and prints on view are by League instructors, and there are also works by League students who went on to prominent careers. Many of the works were donated by Museum namesake Reverend Richard L. Hillstrom, and there are several recent donations from Dr. David and Kathryn Gilbertson as well. We are grateful to all donors who help make acquisitions possible, and we invite any person interested in becoming a donor to contact the Museum.
