Tonight, A Legacy Reunited: The Gordon and Copey Hanes Print Collection is opening at The Diggs Gallery, on the campus of Winston-Salem State University featuring prints from artists like Salvador Rosa, Rembrandt van Rijn, Pablo Picasso, and others. A collaboration between The Diggs Gallery and Salem Academy and College, the exhibit unites pieces of art donated to each school by the Hanes family. From The Winston-Salem Journal: “As extraordinary patrons of the arts, the Hanes family’s contributions form the core of the permanent collections at The Diggs Gallery and Salem College….This exhibition displays the vision and the dedication of the Hanes family and embraces the Hanes’ vision of the arts as a vital and instrumental tool in community building and engagement in Winston-Salem.” ~ Endia BealRead the full article here. The exhibit will be on display until September 19th.
