Through a diverse mix of media and artistic approaches, the depictions of creatures and characters suggest stories and ideas that unfold in surprising, unusual, and amusing ways.
The forty-four artworks by thirty-nine artists include “Mexican Mother and Child” by Jean Charlot and “Phyllis Dobson” by Diego Rivera. Both of these artworks were gifted to the state collection.
