The Muscarelle Museum of Art is a fortunate beneficiary of The Owens Foundation here at William & Mary. The Foundation was created and facilitated by Carroll Owens, Jr., W&M ‘62 and his wife, Patrisia B. Owens, W&M ’62. The Owens Foundation generously provides support to departments on the campus as well as awarding the Monroe scholarship to one undergraduate student per class.
One of the ways that The Owens Foundation has contributed to the Museum and our mission is through several key loans to the collection. In honor of Carroll Owens, Jr. and his service to the Muscarelle and William & Mary, the Museum will be displaying a selection of works from this collection including paintings by Thomas Cole, Robert Henri, Childe Hassam, and Edward Potthast among others.
