Highlighting the contemporary and modern art is a 2003 suite of Allan McCollum graphite works entitled “The Recognizable Image Drawings,” as well as two iconic Edward Weston photographs, “Pepper #30” and “Two Shells.” Among the prints and multiples are works by Sol Lewitt, Robert Rauschenberg, Salvador Dali, Rene Magritte, Joel-Peter Witkin, Roger Shimomura, William Wiley, Peter Max, Victor Vasarely, Yaacov Agam, John Buck, Sabra Field, and Leonard Baskin.
