Dillard Collection of Art on Paper

Since 1965, the Dillard Paper Company, later xpedx, and now the Dillard Fund has generously supported the presentation of Art on Paper exhibitions as well as the development of an important collection of works on paper purchased from those shows. Now numbering close to 600 items, the Dillard Collection of Art on Paper includes examples by noted artists such as Romare Bearden, Stuart Davis, Joan Mitchell, Saya Woolfalk, and Toyin Ojih Odutola, to name a few. In addition, the Weatherspoon takes pride in having acquired from past Art on Paper exhibitions the first works to enter a museum collection by Eva Hesse, Robert Smithson, Amy Cutler, and possibly others. Not surprising, the works that comprise the collection vary in theme, technique, style, and purpose, and consequently offer infinite ways to incorporate them into museum exhibitions. Each work on paper—and the collection as a whole—serves as a valuable resource and source of pride for the campus and broader communities.
