Each year, a varied selection of art is brought in for consideration of purchase with funds provided by JCSM’s 1072 Society, to be added to the museum’s permanent collection. The 1072 Society is composed of friends of the museum, who make a yearly contribution for the express purpose of acquiring new art for the collection. Coinciding with this year’s exhibition, the 1072 Society-enabled acquisitions from past years will be on view in the Chi Omega-Hargis Gallery alongside selected pieces from the Advancing American Art Collection, the seminal collection at the museum that provided the inspiration for the society’s formation.
