15 x 15: The 15th Anniversary Acquisitions Exhibition
Spelman College Museum of Fine Art
Featuring work by: Sheila Pree Bright, Lalla Essaydi, LaToya Ruby Frazier, Carrie Mae Weems

Exhibition: Thu, Sep 8, to Sat, Dec 3 2011

Since the Spelman College Museum of Fine Art was established in 1996, it has methodically grown the College’s permanent collection. In recent years, through key gifts from alumnae and Friends and through careful purchases, the Museum has expanded its permanent holdings to reflect its emphasis on works by and about women of the African Diaspora. In celebration of its 15th anniversary, the Museum has aggressive plans to build upon its legacy and purchase 15 new works by an array of emerging, mid-career, and established artists. Of the 15 works on the Museum’s wish list, 9 are photographs by acclaimed artists including: Sheila Pree Bright, Lalla Essaydi, Renée Cox, LaToya Ruby Frazier, IngridMwangiRobertHutter, Myra Greene, Nandipha Mntambo, Lorna Simpson, and Carrie Mae Weems. "15 x 15: The 15th Anniversary Acquisitions Exhibition" celebrates the Museum’s milestone and presents works in the permanent collection alongside 15 soon to be acquired works. This original exhibition creates a context for the College’s past, present, and future collecting efforts and positions photography as vital to the Museum’s evolution.
