"Object of Devotion: Medieval English Alabaster Sculpture from the Victoria and Albert Museum" opened in the Southwest's only venue at the Tyler Museum of Art on September 4. The Tyler Museum -- a beacon of art in East Texas with roots dating back to 1952 -- is celebrated for its emphasis on diversity in the visual arts. With a growing collection that includes Texas-based artists like James Surls, Terry Allen, and Vernon Fisher, the Tyler Museum also dedicates gallery space within its award-winning structure to the presentation of international exhibitions. "Object of Devotion" follows exhibitions of American Indian beadwork, paintings and decorative art from the Graham Williford Collection, and ASI's own "Fashioning Kimono."
