This stunning first major catalogue published by the Asheville Art Museum highlights and introduces the Museum’s Collection of American art from 1860 to the present. As an introduction, it acknowledges both the depth of the Collection as it currently stands and its continued growth. The breadth and depth of the Collection includes regionally and nationally significant paintings and drawings, prints, photography, sculpture, craft and decorative arts, and focal collections of works by members of the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians, Appalachian historical and contemporary work, the work of Black Mountain College artists, traditional and studio craft in all media, and regional architecture. Explore 296 pages featuring over 220 images paired with scholarly interpretation and generously illustrated essays which provide context and food for further thought and understanding.
Major support for this project is most generously provided by the Henry Luce Foundation. This project is also funded in part by an award from the National Endowment for the Arts
