Woody and Gayle Hunt Family Gallery

It has been sixty years since the founding of the El Paso Museum of Art, and two decades since the museum moved into its downtown building. Now, for the first time, EPMA presents an exhibition of its history. Through artworks representing significant moments for the El Paso Museum of Art, 60 Years of Collecting shares stories of a museum that has grown through the generosity of families and individuals in the region. Highlights of the exhibition include paintings, sculptures, and prints from across EPMA’s significant holdings, and accounts by people key to the museum’s success. 60 Years of Collecting tells the story of the El Paso Museum of Art, and of El Paso.

Support for this exhibition provided by the El Paso Museum of Art Foundation and Texas Commission on the Arts.
