Belger Arts Center
Touring Programs

Touring Exhibition Programs of the Belger Arts Center make major works of art available to other museums and arts organizations for exhibition and study. By sharing its significant in-depth holdings with other institutions, the Belger Arts Center advances a better understanding of contemporary art, the creative process and the value of art in our lives.

Many of the exhibits are accompanied by scholarly and documentary publications, exhibit catalogues and videotapes. Artists may also be available for visits or residencies at host institutions. The Belger Arts Center will assist in making these arrangements whenever possible.

In addition to this diverse group of fully prepared exhibits, the Belger Arts Center encourages curators and scholars to consider a visit to the Center to create exhibits best suiting the scholarly interests and educational needs of their institution.

The year 2007 was a very busy year for the Belger Arts Center on two fronts. During the year, artworks from the John and Maxine Belger Family Foundation collection, administered by the Belger Arts Center, were seen by more than 100,000 museum visitors across America. December was the busiest month with more than 100 Belger Family Foundation works on display at the University of Virginia, Syracuse University, the Polk Museum of Art in Florida, the Morris Museum of Art in Georgia, and the Birmingham Museum of Art in Alabama. Earlier in the year works from the collection could be seen at the Smithsonian American Art Museum in Washington, DC, at Texas Tech University, the Burroughs-Chapin Museum of Art in South Carolina, and other venues.
