Get an insider’s look with Curator Donan Klooz behind the collection of American art in our Katharine C. Cochrane Gallery. What made the cut to be on exhibit, what didn’t, and why? Donan speaks about the art of that time by relying on the  portraits, landscapes, and sculptures, and answering the questions: Who is Katherine Cochrane and how did she get a gallery named after her? How does the art of our collection reflect the culture in America, the south and the world? What are some of the highlights of the gallery? When did furniture (Cabinets, dressers, pie safes) become art? What do we know now that make the art significant, but that the artists didn’t know when they created the pieces? What are some of the most interesting stories about the art?
