Exhibition
In the 1950s, with guidance from instructors like
Charles Stallings, Albert Sangiamo and Richard
Long, the visual arts curriculum gave Morgan’s
students an intellectual framework that
integrated courses in the fine arts with
coursework in the humanities. In addition to
learning in the classroom, Lewis further
differentiated the program by exhibiting and
collecting the work of practicing artists. This
included art by Morgan’s staff and alumni.
This exhibition celebrates that longstanding
vision. Featuring six artists who were part of the
earliest group of protégés to study under
Morgan’s then-nascent fine arts department,
EPOCH: The Legacy and Influence of Six
Morgan Alumni commemorates the influence
of the museum’s founder and the legacy of his
students. Through the examples of their
creative work and prolific careers, each artist
has contributed to the arts and made their
mark in M organ’s history.
