Cultivating Collections: Vitreographs, Glass, and Works by Black Artists Exhibition

May 31 @ 10:00 am - July 29 @ 4:00 pm

Free

Cultivating Collections is a multi-year series of exhibitions that highlights specific areas of the WCU Fine Art Museum’s Collection. Through this series, the Museum and WCU student researchers identify key acquisition areas and pinpoint where significant change is needed.

This year, Cultivating Collections reflects on three areas of the Collection—vitreographs, glass, and works by Black artists. Key works in each area come together to tell the story of past, present, and future collecting directions.

*Cultivating Collections: Glass extends through December 9, 2022
