A New Decade

Posted on January 08, 2020

Turning the calendar to January always lifts my spirits. It’s not only a new year, but also a new decade. While I look forward to what’s ahead, sharing our 2019 collection accomplishments seems most appropriate for this week’s Woodson Wanderings blog post.

Permanently Placed

Posted on November 01, 2017

As promised, this week I’m continuing a two-part blog focused on the Woodson Art Museum’s permanent collection. Gifts from artists and donors account for the majority of the artworks; the Museum also purchases artworks thanks to specific grants. All potential acquisitions are carefully reviewed by a Collections Committee – eight members representing the Board of Directors, staff, and community – and a Collections Management Policy along with a Collecting Plan guide decision making. Each work is diligently researched and the findings shared with the committee.
