The Museum strives to build the collection in meaningful and strategic ways, including a commitment to inclusivity and representation. It became apparent during a survey of the greater collection that photography remains an under-represented media in the Museum’s overall holdings. With this knowledge and the 2015 launch of the photography program at William & Mary, the Muscarelle is pleased to announce we have seen growth in this area due to generous donations and gifts from alumni and individuals coupled with an active collecting initiative by the Museum.
To highlight these new acquisitions in photography, the Muscarelle Museum of Art presents a new exhibition entitled In Focus, on view through April 7, 2020. Photographs in this exhibition display a diversity of process and subject matter. Artists represented include John “Bear” Allison, Markus Brunetti, Julia Margaret Cameron, Kristin Capp, Edward Curtis, Roy DeCarava, Donna Ferrato, Jon Gilbert Fox, Sally Gall, Ralph Gibson, Thurston Hopkins, David Levinthal, Fred J. Maroon, Duane Michals, Ruth Orkin, Vesna Pavlović, Frank Rinehart, Cara Romero, Charles Sheeler, Julius Shulman, Ezra Stoller, Joyce Tenneson, Carleton Watkins, and William Wegman.
