Museum of Art/WSU Presents Curator’s Choice 2011 Exhibition

The Washington State University Museum of Art is proud to share a number of the gems from our permanent collection in the upcoming exhibition Curator’s Choice 2011, May 19-July 2, 2011. In addition, two musical events will be held in the Museum of Art/WSU Gallery – Nighthawk Jazz Quartet: Tuesday, June 7, noon, and Summer Solstice Wind Quintet: Saturday, June 11, 2 p.m. Admission to the museum is always free.

Our summer exhibition has alternated between showcasing regional artists and presenting selections from the Museum’s permanent collection. This year we highlight some of the jewels of our collection, with a focus on the art of landscape: Gaylen Hansen, Patrick Siler, George Innes and many more. All works in our collection come to us as gifts from individuals, foundations and corporations. It is through the generosity of patrons that the Museum continues to evolve and serve our expanding audience and we are excited to be able to introduce these works to the public.
The exhibition is organized by Museum of Art curator, Keith Wells. Wells says, “The sole purpose of this exhibition is to feature some of the best pieces of our permanent collection for visitors to enjoy. I highly recommend this exhibition to anyone who hasn’t seen the permanent collection of the museum.”

The Museum of Art is located on Wilson Road across from Martin Stadium in the Fine Arts Center on the WSU Pullman campus. Summer gallery hours are Tuesday – Saturday, noon – 4 p.m., closed Sunday and Monday. For more information please contact the museum at (509) 335-1910 or visit
