2018 Accession Highlight

Jim Nutt is among the most influential artists of his generation, and work by the members of the Hairy Who, as they called themselves, has gradually gained great importance in the art world. Backman strengthens Mia's holdings of Pop art and comics-inspired objects, allowing the museum to better present the history of 1960's art.
