January 29 - December 17, 2022 The focus of the Nora Eccles Harrison Museum of Art collection in on twentieth and twenty-first century art of the western United States. It consists of over 5,500 objects with large concentrations of paintings, sculpture, works on paper, mixed-media, ceramics, and photography. Two years after the Museum was founded the collection was established with 1800 acquisitions, a significant part of which was given by the Museum’s namesake, Nora Eccles Harrison. Since that time many purchase acquisitions have been made with Marie Eccles Caine Foundation and Kathryn C. Wanlass Foundation funds. Looking Backward In celebration of the opening of the Nora Eccles Harrison Museum in 1982, forty years ago, the Museum is organizing an exhibition of forty works of art from the collection. In an effort to describe the evolution of its growth, one work of art will represent each year of the past forty years of the collection acquisitions.
