by

Samuel P. Harn Museum of Art at Twenty Years: The Collection Catalogue Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

"I congratulate the Samuel P. Harn Museum of Art on its twentieth birthday. This catalogue, which highlights those twenty years of collecting, is an impressive tribute to the museum's donors and supporters as well as to the staff."--Brian A. Dursum, director, University of Miami Lowe Art Museum

The Samuel P. Harn Museum of Art at the University of Florida opened in 1990, dedicated to promoting the power of the arts to inspire, educate, and enrich people's lives. Today, more than 7,400 works are represented in the Harn's various collections.

   

This brilliantly illustrated volume is the museum's first overall collection catalogue. It offers 50 highlights from the museum's five major collecting areas--African art, Asian art, contemporary art, modern art, and photography--as well as selections from its ancient American and Oceanic collections.  Featuring fine, full-page photography and expert commentary from the curators, it is the most complete guide to the museum's collection ever produced.

   

In addition, this innovative volume also provides a history of the facility and offers exclusive, behind-the-scenes information about registration, education, development, marketing, public relations, and community engagement. The result is a truly comprehensive and fascinating look at the Harn's collection, history, and operations.
