TAM: Chuck Close painting added to Telling Stories

This morning (Monday), James installed our Chuck Close painting "Nostalgia No. 2" in Telling Stories. It's an early work from 1960 when Close was exploring abstract expressionism and before he started doing his photo-based work. It was shown in the Northwest Annual at the Seattle Art Museum that same year. He later gave it to Russell Day, a favorite teacher and mentor at Everett Junior College. Russell and his wife Marjorie donated it to Tacoma Art Museum in 2005.


It's hanging on the same wall as the Steve Davis photos, next to the Robert Colescott.
