From Our Editors

A posthumous passion project by the late Muskegon entrepreneur Charles H. Hackley, the Muskegon Art Museum was founded to preserve a lifelong study and appreciation of the visual arts, bringing a love of canvases and sculptures to the former Lumber Queen of the World. Along with regular exhibitions and events, the museum houses a world-class collection, which includes such pieces from some of the past century's most famous artists:

  • Southern Reflection: Winfred Rembert's Chain Gang Picking cotton #2 (2004). With no formal training as an artist, Rembert nevertheless crafts a compelling picture—autobiographical, no less—of imprisoned laborers picking cotton, all with dyes on carved and tooled leather.
  • Avant-Garde Treasure: Whistler's A Study in Rose and Brown (c. 1895)—a painting that, when the museum's first director bought it for $6,750 in 1914, many saw as a waste of money. Today, it is one of the most prized pieces in the collection.
  • Intimate Sculpted Portrait: John W. Wilson's Father and Son (1985)—a bronze sculpture that casts an inspirational image of an African American father reading to his son.
