Permanent Collection Book
This is the Hiram Blauvelt Art Museum's first edition of the Museum's permanent collection. During the early stages of development, several well known artists were especially helpful with guidance and counsel to the museum. Among them were Guy Coheleach, Joe Vance, Doug Allen, Steve Quinn, John Banovich, Leslie Delgyer, Charles Allmond, Kent Ullberg, Walter Matia, Diane and Bob Mason, and Renee Bernis.
