Eloquent Objects - Hillstrom Museum of Art, St. Peter, MN


Event Details

Eloquent Objects features African artworks recently bequeathed to the College from the estate of Ruth and Raymond Reister. Ruth Reister served on the College’s Board of Trustees from 1994 to 2003 and was its chair from 2000 to 2002. She and her husband Raymond were avid collectors of African art.

The exhibition texts for Eloquent Objects, which will also be included in the fully-illustrated brochure accompanies the exhibit, were written by African art specialist Martha G. Anderson. Anderson has published extensively on African art and conducted extensive field research in Africa. She recently retired after over 30 years teaching art history at Alfred University in upstate New York. Anderson has a long relationship with Gustavus Adolphus College where her father, H. Milton Anderson, taught in the Department of Mathematics for over 30 years.

As with all programs and events of the Hillstrom Museum of Art, these exhibitions, the opening reception, and the Gallery Talk are free and open to the public.
