Thirty Years of Collecting: A Recent Gift to the Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art

. August 22, 2010 . 0 Comments

Thirty Years of Collecting: A Recent Gift to the Museum showcases approximately 100 new works of contemporary art given this year to the Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art by Don and Carolyn Eason.

Santa Fe-based collectors, the Easons purchased art throughout their relationship and this wonderful collection is a testament to their shared vision and passion for contemporary art. Daring art collectors, the couple sought out the work of both established and lesser known artists. For example, Kenneth Noland and Ken Price are both represented in the collection alongside the art of John Tinker and Bill Metcalf. In an interview published before Don Eason’s death, the couple described their collection as favoring “the maverick, the quirky, the slightly off.”

Open September 4, 2010-January 23, 2011.
