Nice Work If You Can Get It borrows its title from a George and Ira Gershwin song of the same name. The exhibition explores the interests and idiosyncrasies of an Alabama collector who began acquiring work directly from artists in the 1980s and continues to this day. This selection of works displays some of the diversity of that eclectic collection in the hope that visitors to the museum will be inspired to pursue their own interests in supporting artists and acquiring works of art. Featuring acclaimed and emerging artists from across the United States and around the world, but with a particular focus on Alabama artists, Nice Work If You Can Get It showcases a variety of mediums including artist books, drawing, fiber art, mixed-media assemblage, painting, photography, and sculpture.
