Exhibitions at the Ross Art Museum

The Ross Art Museum strives to exhibit diverse emerging and established artists for our OWU family and community.

Remembering Denny Griffith `74

May 17 - June 28

Kuhlman Gallery

To mark the 50th anniversary of the class of 1974, the Ross Art Museum celebrates the life and art of Dennison W. Griffith (1952-2016). The 10 paintings and 5 drawings in the exhibit reveal a career characterized by constant creative searching. Fearlessly embracing the twists and turns of life's journey, Denny consistently imbued his work with a sense of wonder, humor, and discovery. Over the coming years, Denny's legacy will continue at Ohio Wesleyan University with the announcement of a generous gift of 6 works from his wife Beth Fisher. 

Restore: Conserving Masterworks

April 14 - June 28

West Gallery

Repaired and reconditioned by the team at ICA - Art Conservation in Cleveland, the thirty-one prints on view in Restore: Conserving Masterworks offer a fresh and revitalized look at several artistically significant works housed in the Ross Art Museum's Permanent Teaching Collection. Many pieces in the exhibit were in storage and infrequently exhibited due to condition concerns. An example of our ongoing conservation and collection care initiatives, the project was made possibleby a generous 2021 Inspire! grant from the Institute for Museum and Library Services (IMLS). Representing Western and Japanese printmaking traditions, Restore includes works by Hiroshige Ando, Francisco Goya, Käthe Kollowitz, Hokusai Katsushika, Roy Lichtenstein, Joan Miro, Rene Magritte, Henri Matisse, Pablo Picasso, and more.
