American Prints from the Dr. Francis R. Whitehouse Collection
The Maier Museum of Art at Randolph-Macon Woman's College will open its summer exhibition "American Prints from the Dr. Francis R. Whitehouse Collection" on May 19, 2000. The exhibition will be on view through August 13, 2000. These American prints have come to the Museum through the generosity of Dr. Francis R. Whitehouse, a Lynchburg resident, over the past two decades. Since 1976, Dr. Whitehouse has given over 70 works of art to the Museum, most of them lithographs and etchings. This particular installation will feature works by notable American artists active in the middle twentieth century such as Thomas Hart Benton, Adolf Dehn, Rockwell Kent, and Grant Wood. The exhibition is one of an on-going series of summer installations featuring works on paper from the Maier's permanent collection.

The exhibition is made possible by the Sally Oglesby Disharoon Art Gallery Fund, by an endowment established by the Sarah and Pauline Maier Scholarship Foundation, Inc., and by R-MWC.
In addition to this special exhibition, selections from the Maier's extensive collection of nineteenth- and twentieth-century American art will be on view in adjacent galleries throughout the summer.
