Check out one of our new acquisitions! It has recently been put on view in the John K. Goodman Pavilion:

Jim Vogel, Glory Bound/ Woody Guthrie, oil on panel, 49 x 33 in

Vogel painted Woody Guthrie, a singer-songwriter and musician whose music focused on the plights of migrant workers during the Great Depression and Dust Bowl of the 1930s. The artist makes statements in his images about class and labor from American history but relates it to current times and his own engagement with farmers, miners, and ranchers in New Mexico. His style is reminiscent of Regionalist painters Thomas Hart Benton and John Steuart Curry.
