Tour at Two: Visitors' Choice

Running now through October 9 in the Boone and George-Ann Knox Gallery II is our Recent Acquisitions exhibition, which features more than two dozen works of art, including works on paper, decorative arts, paintings and a neon light sculpture by Nils Folke Anderson. All four of the museum's fine-art curators — Dale Couch, curator of decorative arts; Shawnya Harris, Larry D. and Brenda A. Thompson Curator of African American and African Diasporic Art; Lynn Boland, Pierre Daura Curator of European Art; and Sarah Kate Gillespie, curator of American art — collaborated to select the works on display.

Now it's your turn: We are looking for input to select one of these works to be featured in our next gallery talk/tour — to be led by whichever curator picked the work. Vote for your favorite by clicking on and “liking” the photo on our Facebook photo album. (As you click through the album, the wall text for each is shown after the image.) If you are in the museum, you can vote using the box in the exhibition's gallery. The tour will be held at 2 p.m., Wednesday, August 10, and is free and open to the public.
