“The Gift of Art: Selections from Notable Berry Donors” August 1, 2019- September 1, 2020

the-gift-of-art-G4134.jpgCurated by Senior art history major, Remington Jackson, and the student staff at Oak Hill, this exhibition showcases the rich history of the museum’s permanent collection. Though the artworks shown vary in style periods, subject matter, and medium, they all came to the Berry Schools as donations from individuals such as Mary Reynolds Morton, Princess Eugenia Ruspoli, and Nell Choate Jones in the 20th century. These donors gave to Berry in many ways, but they felt it was also vital to the students’ education to share the gift of art.
