In 1989 Edward “Bud” Jacobson donated his collection of turned wood bowls by contemporary American artists. This collection has since influenced the museum's collecting of wood art.
This exhibition shows 60 works from the museum's permanent collection and includes pieces from the Jacobson collection but is dominated by newer work. If you can't get to see this exhibition this summer, the museum plans to create a permanent display in recognistion of Jacobson's contribution to woodturning.
