  • Description

    UG at 50: The Roy Craven Legacy celebrates the 50th anniversary of University Gallery occurring in 2015 and the legacy of Roy Craven, the gallery’s founding and longest standing director of 25 years. The exhibition is guest curated by Roy Hunt, an original member of the Gallery Guild, whose drive gave birth to the Samuel P. Harn Museum of Art and its overall collections direction. The exhibition, which runs Dec. 2, 2014 through Feb. 27, 2015 in University Gallery on UF’s campus, showcases approximately 50 objects acquired from 1965 to 1988 that were originally in the University Gallery collection and were later transferred to the Harn Museum of Art. The pieces selected showcase an even representation of mediums, from Indian sculptures to contemporary photographs by some of the leading photographers of our generation.

    An opening reception will be held Friday, Jan. 9, 2015 from 7-9 p.m. and will feature baked goods by Vine in Focus Gallery. Both the exhibition and reception are free and open to the public.
