The current IUP University Museum exhibit, Gilded Age to Great War: Milton Bancroft and His Art, is featured in the September–October issue of American Art Review. The lavishly illustrated, eight-page article was written by Museum Board members Donna Cashdollar and Art Department faculty member Brenda Mitchell, and by Rhonda Yeager, Art Department visual resource curator and museum collections manager.

Other exhibits featured are from major American venues, including the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, Massachusetts; the Flagler Museum in Palm Beach, Florida; the Rockport Art Association and Museum, Rockport, Massachusetts; the Philadelphia Museum of Art, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; the Currier Museum of Art in Manchester, New Hampshire; the National Sporting Library and Museum in Middleburg, Virginia; the Cascadia Art Museum in Edmonds, Washington; and the Norman Rockwell Museum in Stockbridge, Massachusetts.

College of Fine Arts Dean Michael Hood stated that “This national recognition is greatly encouraging. Our museum is very dependent upon its hard-working volunteer board of directors and on those individuals and organizations who choose to provide gift and/or grant support for our operations and projects. Knowing that our efforts have placed us in the company of the Philadelphia Museum of Art and the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, among other prestigious sites, makes clear that the investment made in the Museum has been a good one, and is both humbling and very gratifying.”

The exhibit continues in the University Museum galleries in John Sutton Hall through October 29. Admission is free. For further information got to the University Museum.
