The NAU Art Museum presents two related exhibitions, “Across Cultures: Fifty Objects from the Macy Collection” and “The Aaron Macy Legacy Exhibition: Scholarship Recipients 2002-2010.”  The exhibitions run through Nov. 23.

There will be a reception in conjunction with the College of Arts and Letters Homecoming Celebration from 5 to 7 p.m. Oct. 28 at the Art Museum in Old Main.

“Across Cultures” reveals the mutual influences of Eastern and Western artistic traditions, including those of Native American Nations, in contemporary painting, textiles, ceramics and sculpture. “The Aaron Macy Legacy Exhibition” celebrates work created by recipients of the scholarship fund established by Douglas Macy in memory of his son, who was a graduate of NAU’s School of Art.

“Together, these two exhibitions make a powerful case for the value of collecting and philanthropy in the cultural life of a community,” said George Speer, director of the museum.

The NAU Art Museum is open from noon to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday and closed all university holidays. These exhibitions are free and open to the public with a suggested $2 per person donation.

The museum is located on the corner of Knoles Drive and McMullen Circle in the historic Old Main building. For information, visit or call (928) 523-3471.
