Recent Acquisitions

This exhibition presented new gifts and museum purchases added to the permanent collection at the Cornell Fine Arts Museum of Rollins College during the last two years.  With an emphasis on American photography and contemporary art, works by Margaret Bourke-White, Andy Warhol, Matthew Brandt, and Felrath Hines were featured.  In particular, two recent acquisitions by the Los Angeles-based artist Ramiro Gomez were highlighted. In his dynamic drawings, Gomez deals with issues such as labor and commercialism. In recent years, the museum has experienced tremendous growth of its permanent collection, and this exhibition served as a testament to this groundbreaking expansion.
