JoAnn Gonzalez Hickey Collection

The JoAnn Gonzalez Hickey Collection is a significant collection of contemporary works on paper with more than 400 international, early to mid-career contemporary artists represented in the collection. While the collection initially focused on abstract works, over time it has been extended to challenge traditional notions of drawing. The character of the collection is shaped by the collector’s aesthetic and is guided by strict adherence to a set of principles she has set forth for collecting. Part of the mission of the collection is to promote a deeper understanding of the nature of works on paper, all the while exploring the question, “What is drawing?” It is through the thoughtful and thorough vision of the collector that we are brought to genuinely question what constitutes a drawing and asked to reconsider the potential of paper as a support for ideas and creativity.
