New Acquisitions

This exhibition of recently acquired works of art for the David Owsley Museum of Art highlights the robust growth of the museum’s permanent collection thanks to donations, purchases, and promised gifts on long-term loan. It also manifests our commitment to the universal art museum, one that showcases the artistic heritage of the Midwest, the Americas, and the world.

The new additions feature Old Master prints by Frenchmen Jacques Callot and Jean-Jacques Lagranée, Pre-Columbian sculpture from the Aztec and Olmec cultures, and works of Jain and Buddhist art from India, China, Tibet, and Thailand. Recent acquisitions also include paintings, prints, and sculpture by American regional masters, such as the Midwestern painter Edwin Fulwider, Indiana sculptor Gary Freeman, and former Ball State University printmaker Ronald Penkoff. In addition, the modern and contemporary art on exhibit originates from across the United States, including works by New York artist Merle Temkin, Midwestern printmaker David F. Driesbach, and the late San Francisco painter and printmaker William Wolff."
