Saturday Special Tour by Matthew McLendon
Select Works from The Alan Groh-Buzz Miller Collection

In 1999, The Fralin was given an exceptional collection composed primarily of work by many of the leading mid-twentieth-century American artists. Given by Buzz Miller in honor of his partner Alan Groh (COLL ’49), the collection is now known as the Alan Groh-Buzz Miller Collection. Andy Warhol, Robert Indiana, Marisol Escobar, Joseph Cornell, Joan Mitchell, Isamu Noguchi, among many others are represented in this collection that at once transformed the museum’s holdings. Alan Groh was the long-time director of the famed Stable Gallery in New York City before becoming director at the A.M. Sachs Gallery, thus many of the artists represented were friends of Miller and Groh. In celebration of the twentieth anniversary of this important gift, select works from the Groh-Miller Collection will be on view.
