Celebrating the Collection

March 6 – June 6, 2021
During spring 2021, artwork from the collection returns to the spotlight when most of the Museum’s galleries will feature a dazzling curated presentation of paintings, sculpture, drawings, and graphics created over a 180-year period. Responding to Covid-19 in spring 2020, the Woodson Art Museum re-configured its largest gallery for special/traveling exhibitions rather than featuring selections from the collection. This change allowed for installations to be physically distanced, thereby creating an even more welcoming and safer environment for visitors. In spring 2021, the focus shifts to emphasize and highlight Museum collection artwork.
