TACOMA, WASH. – The Tacoma Art Museum presents “The Beauty of a Shared Passion: Highlights from the Rebecca and Jack Benaroya Collection,” on view through April 23. This preview exhibition unveils 65 major works of art from the Rebecca and Jack Benaroya Collection that are among 225 works along with $14 million included in a promised gift to the museum, announced earlier this year on Mrs Benaroya’s 93rd birthday (January 14). The funds will support the care of the collection and construction of a new wing at TAM. Olson Kundig will design the museum expansion, planned to open late fall 2018.
Visitors will see paintings, works on paper, sculptures and studio art glass by Northwest and international artists. In fact, this gift places Tacoma in the top five museums nationwide with a collection of American studio glass of this caliber. The exhibition provides an opportunity to see in one location major works by Deborah Butterfield, Kenneth Callahan, Dale Chihuly, Kyohei Fujita, Stanislav Libensk
