New Acquisitions from the Herberger Collection (September 11, 2018-December 30, 2018)
This special tribute exhibition features a recent gift to the museum from longtime Arizona leader and philanthropist, Jeanne L. Herberger, Ph.D., in loving memory of Gary Kierland Herberger.
New Acquisitions from the Herberger Collection includes a wide range of artistic styles by nationally recognized artists. Lon Megargee’s lithographic prints from The Cowboy Builds a Loop (1944) and futuristic space art paintings by Robert McCall help tell the diverse stories of artists living and working in Arizona. Other works include Lew Davis’ modernistic landscape entitled White Moon and Desert Brush (1954); the surrealistic stagecoach painting First Class (1961) by Philip C. Curtis; and bronzes by John Henry Waddell. Artist Steve Kestrel’s weathered limestone sculpture of an owl that graced the Herberger’s garden highlights how these artworks were a part of the Herberger family’s daily life.
