Honoring Will Owen through an Installation of Contemporary Art

The winter 2016 exhibition Contemporary Abstraction includes six works from the Will Owen and Harvey Wagner Collection of Indigenous Australian Art. Harvey and Will gifted these works—and over 600 others—to the museum beginning in 2009. Will Owen died unexpectedly on December 2, 2015, and his friends at the Hood Museum of Art have dedicated this installation of contemporary abstract works to his memory.
