Rarely Seen Treasures from the Permanent Collection
July 10 2009 - August 23 2009
This exhibition celebrates the 30th Anniversary of the return of the Museum's Permanent Collection to Shawnee in 1979 after it was housed in Oklahoma City for several years. The Curator of Collections and Director of the Mabee-Gerrer Museum of Art have selected unique works of art that have rarely been seen by the public. Approximately 95% of the Museum's collection is in storage at any one time. Periodically pieces rotate into the permanent collection gallery or are part of the temporary exhibits.
"This was a difficult exhibit to curate because we have so many wonderful and unique pieces in our collection, it was difficult to narrow down the list," said Curator of Collections, Delaynna Trim. "This exhibit allows visitors to see some very unusual and truly great pieces that have not been out on exhibit for many years."
