Building a Legacy: Selections from the Permanent Collection
December 13 – March 28, 2021
Organized by the Tyler Museum of Art, Building a Legacy is presented in conjunction with the TMA’s 50th Anniversary.
Shortly after opening the doors to the public in 1971, the TMA formed a Permanent Collection focusing on works created by contemporary Texas artists. Through the years, gifts from the individuals, foundations and other organizations have expanded our holdings and broadened the collection’s scope. Now boasting more than 1,500 works, the TMA proudly holds many significant pieces by renowned regional, national and international artists.
