Twenty years ago, a group of artists envisioned a plan to honor Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum founders John and Alice Woodson Forester for their unwavering commitment to artists. More than 150 artists offered gifts of small-scale paintings, works on paper, and sculpture. The exhibition and publication Natural Wonders live on in tribute. Natural Wonders: Commemorating Twenty Years features a selection of sixty works from the larger collection.
