Throughout its history, Cameron Art Museum in Wilmington NC has been honored as steward of generous gifts of art from private collectors. This exhibition tells the story of three gifts and the relationships inspiring such philanthropic leadership. Works include color etchings by Impressionist Mary Cassatt given by Thérèse Thorne McLane, and Japanese woodblock prints by Edo period artists Hiroshige and Kunisada II given by Dr. Isabel Bittinger. Besides her musical and theatrical performances as star of Broadway, film and television, Linda Lavin has built a collection of artwork from leading Native American artists of the Southwest as well as Bay area and New York artists. Lavin has generously loaned and given selections from her art collection to Cameron Art Museum for both exhibition and acquisition to CAM’s permanent collection.
