Congrats to the ‘Jewel in the Crown’

I received my copy of the magazine in the mail and was delighted — thrilled, ecstatic — to see “Art Appreciation” on the cover, the extraordinarily supportive letter from Rock Jones just inside and, most especially, the fantastic article about the museum as a feature in the issue. The inclusion of a number of images from the collection and thoughts from quite a variety of individuals made the article strong in message and comprehensive in scope. Hopefully, it will catch the attention of the many who are unaware of the museum and encourage those who are familiar with it to again visit and support the institution, the mission, and the goals.

“Art Is Vital to Democracy and Life,” Rock Jones’ introduction to the issue, was great in that it emphasized the role of the museum as an institution and as an integral part of the University fabric.

From my first meeting as a member of the Advisory Board, I have advocated for recognition of the Richard M. Ross Art Museum as the “Jewel in the Crown” of Ohio Wesleyan University, particularly in the University magazine. Congratulations to the museum for this well-deserved accolade! I feel Elizabeth McKeever Ross smiling!
