Project update for the Stuart Wing at the Fred Jones Jr. Museum of Art on the campus of the University of Oklahoma. Project Architect, Mike Mays, AIA, is working on the punch list for this wonderful new gallery addition to the museum. The new space, scheduled for opening Fall of 2011, will house the Eugene B. Adkins Collection of Southwest and Native American art and a photography mezzanine.
The Adkins Collection is among the nation’s most important private collections of works by the Taos artists as well as Native American works of art. It totals more than 3,300 objects in a number of categories, including 1,100 two-dimensional works, 370 pieces of pottery, more than 1,600 examples of jewelry and silverwork, and nearly 250 pieces of other Native arts.
