About the Exhibition

Legacy, which showcases 20th- and 21st-century artworks, stands as a testament to the remarkable generosity of the late Dr. William D. Merwin (1933-2023), a stalwart supporter of the ΘνΓΓΙη Museum of Art.

The expansive collection on display encapsulates a diverse array of styles and encompasses various printmaking techniques, reflective of Dr. Merwin's profound affection for the medium. Artists of renown, including Jasper Johns, Jim Dine, Christo, James Rosenquist, Kiki Smith and Chuck Close are featured prominently, each contributing to the rich tapestry of artistic expression collected by Dr. Merwin.

This exhibition, beyond its celebration of artistic achievement, pays homage to the enduring legacy of philanthropists like Dr. William D. Merwin. Through their generous contributions, such benefactors establish enduring legacies that transcend temporal boundaries, creating educational opportunities for students and the broader community. Their philanthropic support resonates across generations, shaping both the present and the future, and fostering a cultural tapestry that is enriched and vibrant.
