Making Connections: Collectors & Museums
Collectors fulfill a significant role in the museum world. Through generous contributions to these institutions, museums are able to serve a larger purpose than simply housing and caring for aesthetically impressive objects. The stories told and histories on display in a museum would not be as effective without the successful collaboration of collectors’ gifts and knowledgeable curators who interpret the collection. What should collectors know about translating their passion for collecting art into supporting institutions that facilitate the preservation of Western art and history? Follow the discussion as Moderator Tim Newton addresses these questions and more with Ryan Fuhrmann and Clayton Taylor.

Why Western Art?
What is Western art and how does it differ from other genres in today’s market? Why should I buy it? And what are the trends past and present that have influenced the buyers and artists? These are the questions many may ask themselves before diving headfirst into the world of Western art-collecting. Join Moderator Michael Clawson and seasoned collectors Dr. Larry Len Peterson and Jim Parks as they make a case for collecting Western Art and discuss the makings of two remarkable collections.
