Brilliant: Recent Acquisitions to the Permanent Collection

February 7 - December 6, 2020

“Brilliant” celebrates acquisitions made by the Art Museum of WVU over the past several years and includes a number of rarely seen treasures from its permanent collection—­­many exhibited for the first time. Together, the works in this exhibition exemplify art of the present and recent past, as expressed by artists that seek intelligence and intensity in the objects they create.
