As one part of our multi-part 75th Anniversary celebration, our blog will feature weekly posts about HMA’s history: founding and other supporting personalities, our art collection’s beginnings and growth, our well-known and perhaps not as well-known local and regional artists, our exhibits over these years, and an occasional surprise. Some of the posts you may recognize as updates of earlier posts, while others will be new to the blog. Seventy-five posts for seventy-five weeks starting now, so keep watching!
Because yes, 2019 marks the 75th anniversary of the Museum's founding in 1944! And we just had to start early to celebrate that milestone.
This post is #1 of the 75 stories to celebrate HMA's 75 years.
