New Publications


Art lovers of all ages will take a journey when they open this new ABC book featuring works from the Hallie Ford Museum of Art collections. Readers take off on their ABC adventure with an ivory airplane from 1951 by Al Kaloke and end with the zigzag design on a Klamath-Modoc basket from the early 20th century. Works range in age from an ancient Egyptian eye, that is over 3000 years old, to more contemporary pieces by artists from the Pacific Northwest.

Proceeds from the sale of this book support educational programming at the Hallie Ford Museum of Art.

Edited by Elizabeth Garrison, the Cameron Paulin Curator of Education at the Hallie Ford Museum of Art.

Breath of Heaven, Breath of Earth: Ancient Near Eastern Art from American Collections

By Trudy Kawami and John Olbrantz
This lavishly illustrated book explores the art of the ancient Near East that has been brought together in this exhibition co-organized by Trudy Kawami and John Olbrantz. The artworks range in age from approximately 500 BCE to 6000 BCE and include works from the geographic regions of Mesopotamia, Syria and the Levant, Anatolia and Iran.

This time period laid the foundation for Western civilization. Kawami examines the art, culture and themes of the exhibition while Olbrantz delves into how the ancient Near East captured the imagination and interest of America and how this fueled the growth of ancient Near Eastern art collections in the United States.

The book is dedicated to the late James Romano, curator of ancient art at the Brooklyn Museum of Art. The book will be distributed by the University of Washington Press, Seattle and London.
