Shared Passion: A Gift of the Stuart and Barbara Padnos Foundation Collection

August 22 to October 31, 2014
Fall Arts Celebration Reception: September 30, 2014, 5-7 p.m.

Throughout their long marriage, businessman and philanthropist Stuart Padnos and his wife Barbara amassed a notable collection of art filling their waterfront home in Holland, Michigan. The collection served as an overview of both European and American art of the twentieth century and as a legacy to the couples evolving artistic aesthetic and wide range of interests.
