Belew Collection To Be Exhibited In University Art Gallery

May 24, 2001

The John S. Belew art collection will be on display from May 29 through July 20 in the University Art Gallery at Baylor University's Hooper-Schaefer Fine Arts Center. The collection is part of the Martin Museum of Art permanent collection.

Formed in 1991 to honor Dr. John Belew, who was retiring as Baylor provost, the collection features 15 works of art, from ceramics to sculpture to pieces created as part of the art education program. Each tenured or tenure-track faculty member in the art department was asked to donate a piece of his or her work.

"Dr. Belew was a great friend to the department and this collection pays homage to him," said Dr. Heidi Hornik, associate professor of art history and director of the Martin Museum. "This will be the first time the collection has been exhibited as a whole, and viewers will be able to see representations of everything we teach in studio art classes at Baylor."

The gallery is open Tuesday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Saturday from noon to 5 p.m. and during matinee and evening performances of Baylor Theater. There is no admission charge.
