New Exhibition Showcases American Art

A new exhibition opened Sunday in East Texas, the first of it's kind.  The Tyler Museum of Art unveiled it's Graham Williford's America collection.  It's a survey of American art by various artists from several decades.  The exhibition consists of more than 60 pieces from native East Texan Graham Williford's collection.

"They are going to see something they will not see anywhere else," said Guest Curator Anne Goley.  "They will not see this in other major cities in Texas.  It is really a history of American paintings."  The exhibition will run through May 11.  Tickets are $5 for adults and $3 for seniors and students.
