The Weisman Art Museum Acquires "Seed" For Collection

Weisman_Art_Museum

The Weisman Art Museum, on the campus of the University of Minnesota, has acquired the sumi ink drawing titled “Seed” for their collection. I have been a fan of the museum since the very first time I set foot in it. One extremely cold winter afternoon in 1993, while visiting a friend who was attending the University, I stumbled into this unusual building to find a mix of Pop and Abstract Expressionist works. I was impressed with the space.

Fast forward 20 years… As a Jerome Fellow, I was asked to present my work to the Weisman ART MOB (a group of collectors from the area who collect works for the Weisman.) About a year after presenting my work to the ART MOB they contacted me about presenting them with a work for possible purchase. I’m pleased to say they were taken with the work and found the funds to acquire it.
