The Ackland Art Museum is interested in the private art collections of Carolina alumni, and in September the museum will open an exhibit on that theme: Carolina Collects: 125 Years of Modern and Contemporary Art.
The exhibit, to focus on European and American art in all media from about 1880 to the present, will run Sept. 9 through Dec. 4.
The museum is identifying and contacting alumni who collect art from this period. The show will be accompanied by a fully illustrated catalogue.
Future exhibitions also may showcase Asian, African, earlier European and other art traditions from alumni collections.
“It is the hope of the Ackland that Carolina Collects will demonstrate the breadth and depth of Carolina alumni collections to the campus and the community,” said Emily Bowles, director of communications for the museum.
