Photomedia Center's permanent collection began with its first purchase — Equilibrium, by Louviere+Vanessa. It was the Purchase Award from the 2004 Open Juried Exhibition. In its small way, the collection not only documents the range of artists who've shown with us throughout the years, but also directly supports working artists as funds are available.
Adding new pieces each year from our juried shows honored our commitment to purchase works from participating artists. Regularly on this blog, we'll highlight pieces we've previously acquired and the new ones that continue its growth. Some prints were gifts of the artists, others purchased outright — all illustrate the high caliber of work we've supported for nearly a decade.
