The genesis of Maryhill Museum of Art’s permanent collection was a gift from Queen Marie of Romania during her 1926 visit to dedicate the museum. Since that time, the collection has expanded tremendously, with particular growth since 2010. The exhibition includes a fascinating array of newly acquired works, including Romanian folk clothing, American Indian baskets and beadwork, half-size French and American fashions, medieval illuminated manuscripts, art glass, as well as paintings and prints by artists Lillian Pitt, Rick Bartow, Betty LaDuke, Fritz Scholder, R.H. Ives Gammell and others.
