CONTEMPORARY TEXAS: SELECTIONS FROM THE PERMANENT COLLECTION
August 3-November 30, 2014
When the TMA made the decision to form a Permanent Collection, a pronounced emphasis was placed on collecting contemporary Texas art. Contemporary Texas: Selections from the Permanent Collection highlights close to 30 stellar works the Museum has acquired over the past few decades – including pieces by Terry Allen, David Bates, Vernon Fisher, Melissa Miller, James Surls and many other contemporary Texas artists.
Contemporary Texas provides a rare opportunity to view some of the most celebrated works from the TMA’s Permanent Collection together in a single exhibition, offering a glimpse into the Museum’s rich history and its indelible place in the Texas art scene over the past few decades.
The Tyler Museum of Art is supported by its Members and Tyler Junior College.
