This year's event helps raise critical funds to conserve several works on paper by Will Barnet in the Museum's permanent collection. Barnet (1911-2012) was an American painter and printmaker known for his signature minimalist representational style of his subjects utilizing clean lines, flat planes, and carefully placed volumes of solid color. His works are included in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art, the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the National Gallery of Art, and your very own Springfield Art Museum.
