Goodbye for now – Tooker on loan

'Supper' by TookerCurrently, our George Tooker, Supper (1963) is on loan and now on view at an exhibit at the Brooklyn Museum. Witness: Art and Civil Rights in the Sixties offers a focused look at painting, sculpture, graphics, and photography from a decade defined by social protest and American race relations. Read a New York Times review of the exhibit, Battle Lines For Change by Holland Cotter.

“It’s hard to say goodbye to our favorites – staff and visitors do miss them – but we feel strongly the need to support other museums with thoughtful and responsible loans of our art.  MAG benefits as well; the scholarship that comes from these exhibitions and their accompanying catalogs enhances our understanding of the artist, the art, and the context in which it was created.   We’re also proud of our collection and want to share it with a wider audience.  At the moment, work from our collection is in exhibitions around the world, in France, Spain, Canada, Florida, Wisconsin, and New York City.”
