"During its Inaugural Year the Patrick and Beatrice Haggerty Museum of Art has attracted significant gifts of art including important Old Master paintings, prints and drawings, photographs, sculpture, decorative arts, Oriental, and tribal arts. Among the highlights of this year's gifts are four seventeenth-century Dutch and Flemish paintings, a collection of American Regionalist mural paintings by artists Joe Jones and James B. Turnbull, and substantial additions to the print collection. Perhaps the most visible of the inaugural gifts are the eighteen sculptural tables and benches designed by artist Ernest Shaw that grace the garden area north of the museum, given by Mr. and Mrs. Robert H. Apple. Approximately one sixth of the year's gifts are on display in this exhibition. Others will appear in future exhibitions of the art of specific periods or themes."
