Mary H. Hodges, In Memory of J. Churchill Hodges, Presents Collection Wisdom

October 25 - February 15, 2015

Mary H. Hodges, In Memory of J. Churchill Hodges, Presents: COLLECTION WISDOM: Emeritus & Honorary Trustees Select will be featured during the January 2015 4th Tuesday Tour at 7 p.m. January 27, 2015. Admission is free. Refreshments will be served.

For the next year-and-a-half the Museum has scheduled a series of small exhibitions that will tap the knowledge which our Trustees and Staff have gleaned about HMA’s collection during their many years of involvement with this institution. We had great success with an exhibition in 2010 called Docents Select, and we are presenting these follow-up shows with collection picks from staff and board members; for who better knows the collection and the mission of the Museum?

This series of shows will be presented on the Bridge Gallery, and will be divided into four distinct exhibits as follows:

Emeritus and Honorary Board Members (October 25, 2014 – February 15, 2015)

HMA Staff (March 21, 2015 – July 12, 2015)

Voting Board Members I (July 25, 2015 – November 8, 2015)

Voting Board Members II (November 21, 2015 – February 21, 2016)

We are asking each trustee and staff member to pick a favorite small-scale work, and provide a short write-up explaining why a specific work was selected. It will be interesting to view their choices!

This exhibit is presented by Mary H. Hodges, In Memory of J. Churchill Hodges. Additional support for this exhibit is provided by the West Virginia Division of Culture and History, and the National Endowment for the Arts, with approval from the West Virginia Commission on the Arts.
