William Hawkins, Museum Coordinator for the Tuscaloosa Museum of Art, March 4, 2014
Posted By admin
Located at Westervelt Company headquarters, the Tuscaloosa Museum of Art displays approximately 1000 works to foster a sense of community while promoting and disseminating an understanding of fine and decorative arts.
The collection was amassed by Jack Warner over several decades as investments for Gulf States Paper, now the Westervelt Company. Operated by a 501 (c) foundation, the museum was asked by the Westervelt Company to share its collection with the community to promote a better understanding of the arts and connecting to all areas of education. Considered to be one of the greatest private collections of American Art, it is truly a treasure within and for the community.
William Hawkins, Museum Coordinator for the Tuscaloosa Museum of Art, will present a program on “American Masters: The Art of the Tuscaloosa Museum of Art.”
William is a native of Tuscaloosa and is married with one child. He holds a Bachelor of Arts degree from Huntingdon College in Montgomery and has worked with the art collection for 4 years.
