From the Director
After nearly 20 months of “project renaissance” and some recent significant milestones, I appreciate your indulgence in allowing me to boast about a few things…
First, we are excited and extremely grateful for the recent appropriation by Governor Snyder and our Michigan legislature, with the announcement that $1 million from the State of Michigan fiscal 2015 Strategic Fund will be awarded to the Saginaw Art Museum.

Highlights from the Collection
A Summer Afternoon from the collection has recently been published in the catalogue raisonné of American painter Jasper Francis Cropsey (1823-1900), funded by Newington-Cropsey Foundation in Hastings-on-Hudson, NY.
Cropsey brought to his panoramic vistas a precise recording of nature. The vastness and detail in his paintings, such as A Summer Afternoon, depicts a serene and sun-drenched harvest scene. The painting reveals both the grandeur and infinite complexity of nature.
JASPER FRANCIS CROPSEY, A Summer Afternoon, 1853, oil on canvas, 27 x 42 in. Gift of Thomas O. Lohr, MD & Francis Lohr, in memory of their parents, Dr. & Mrs. Oliver Lohr, #1998.3
