A 'MOVING' HISTORY:
Art MuseumHopes for New Quarters

By BEATRICE TEODORO
One set of buildings for art col-
lections, classes, and other art
interests now scattered over the
campus, is the hope of Helen B.
Hall, curator of the University,
Museum of Art.
"In this way, more adequate
quarters for the Museum would
also be provided," she said.
For more than 100 . years, the'
University art collection has
shared the quarters of other cam-
pus developments. In 1885, it was
a part of the archaelogical-art ac-
tivities, and was housed in the
north and south wings, of old Uni-
versity Hall.
Later, when the General Library.
was built, a section was set apart
as an art gallery. And in 1910, the
collection moved into its present
site, Alumni Memorial Hall, where
it again shared space with the of-
fices of several University groups.
Establish Museum
In 1946, the Museum was estab-
lished as a separate entity, and
the Regents voted it a small an-
nual grant. Until then the major

part of the collection had been
gathered from gifts.
The most important contempor-
ary painting in the permanent
collection, Miss Hall believes, is
Max Beckmann's "Begin the Be-
guine" (1946). Of the greatest his-
torical value is the recently ac-
quired "St. John on Patmos,"
painted'by the 16th century Flem-
ish ,artist, Joos van Cleve.
Tota1y, the present collection
contains about 3,700 objects of
art. The Museum is active in ac-
quainting the public with these
pieces through changing displays.
- Exchange Art
In addition, the Museum Is
presently sponsoring several small
exhibits -that are touring Michi-
gan, including a series of 30 Mex-
ican prints and drawings, as well
as acquiring traveling exhibits
from national agencies,jusually
two each month. Coming soon are
"Fulbright Painters" and "Con-
temporary Italian Paintings."
And so begins the 1959 fall sea-
son for the Museum of Art, the
state's oldest public art gallery.
