Recent Acquisitions

January 26 – March 16, 2020

Maribeth Collins Lobby

Since the museum opened in 1998, the Hallie Ford Museum of Art has worked to build a diverse collection of contemporary and historic artworks to serve as a resource for both the Willamette University community and the larger regional community. With over 9000 artworks, the collection has grown through donations from collectors and purchases made possible with the support of generous patrons. The works on view in the Maribeth Collins Lobby were all purchases made during 2019. Featured artists include Enrique Chagoya, Burlon "B.B." Craig, Hung Liu, George Rodriguez, Alison Saar, and Milton Wilson.  

This exhibition was originally going to go through May 17 but closed early due to COVID-19. 



Financial Support

This exhibition has been supported by general operating support grants from the City of Salem's Transient Occupancy Tax funds and the Oregon Arts Commission.
