Fowler in Focus: Fiftieth Anniversary Gifts
December 21, 2014–April 26, 2015
On the occasion of the Museum’s fiftieth anniversary many friends of the Fowler have made special donations of works of art. The selection of objects shown here represents our third and final Fowler in Focus installation highlighting such gifts. Where the previous two were dedicated to Asia and Africa respectively, the focus here is the Americas. Since its inception, the Fowler Museum has benefited from the generous support of donors whose collecting interests have centered on the traditional and popular arts of Latin America and the Caribbean. Whether from the American Southwest, Mexico, Guatemala, or Haiti, the beautiful donations and promised gifts shown here greatly enhance specific regional collections and, in some cases, are intended for future exhibition and publications projects now in development.
