New museum gift; remodeling will allow more displays

The Nora Eccles Harrison Museum of Art at Utah State University has received a major gift of 31 new works from the Kathryn C. Wanlass Foundation and Marie Eccles Caine Foundation. The new works are on display as part of the exhibition “Uses of The Real,” an exhibit that explores what constitutes art in today’s world. Newly-remodeled gallery spaces have allowed the museum staff to bring out the collection in a way not experienced before.Walls have been knocked down and new fixtures installed to allow about 500 or more objects to be put on display, including more than 100 photographs and 250 ceramic works usually stored away and inaccessible to the public.Museum director, Victoria Rowe Berry, says the next time visitors walk through the galleries many of their favorite objects will be out of storage and available to enjoy.
