Professor Devan Shimoyama‘s work “A Tiny Tribute” is part of a recent gift to the Columbus Museum of Art from the Scantland Collection. The work is currently on view at the museum as part of the exhibition “Present Generations: Creating the Scantland Collection of the Columbus Museum of Art” through May 2022.
The Scantland Collection is one of the most dynamic young private collections of contemporary visual art in North America. From its position in Columbus, Ohio, the Collection is committed to a broad perspective on the creative energies of this moment; its intention is to form an evolving and wide-ranging picture of art in the mid-21st century. With vivid paintings as well as photographic and sculptural installations, the works by 27 artists in “Present Generations” show the creative exuberance of contemporary art practice as it also grapples with questions of visibility and identity among other urgent and underlying social concerns.
