  • History –
    Southern folk and outsider art and certain forms of decorative arts As the Museum celebrated its 50th birthday in 1980 it was also honored with the establishment of the Weil Print Fund ensuring a first rate and growing collection of European historical works on paper from Mr Adolph Bucks Weil Jr and his wife Jean who gave the Fund in honor of his parents Mr and Mrs Adolph Weil Sr Mr and Mrs Weil Jr continued to augment the Museum s holdings with gifts of old master prints from their personal collection throughout their lives By 1980 it became apparent that the museum library configuration was increasingly limiting the growth and capability of the Museum Building a new facility would require unprecedented vision leadership and cooperation Numerous dedicated arts supporters undertook the project to build a new state of the art museum Robert S Weil Mayor Emory Folmar and Ida Belle Young were visionaries in the inception of the campaign With a commitment from the Montgomery County Commission to share equally with the City in the Museum s future operational expenses a gift of land for the site and 1 million in pledges from private individuals the Montgomery City Council passed a 3 million bond issue in 1984 for the construction of the Museum that opened in 1988 Later a gift of forty one American paintings from Blount Inc and 35 plus acres of land from Mr and Mrs Winton M Blount allowed the Museum an opportunity to significantly expand the size and quality of its permanent collection and to become the visual arts component to the Alabama Shakespeare Festival in the existing Wynton M Blount Cultural Park With the addition of more than 3 4 million in contributions from individuals and businesses the Museum s magnificent facility became a reality A pair of early American portraits Erastus Salisbury Field s Bartlett Doten and Augusta Mason Doten came to the Museum in 1986 given by Mr and Mrs James Lucien Loeb In making this gift Mr and Mrs Loeb continued an established family tradition of exceptional generosity toward the Museum As a member of the Museum s board of trustees Mr James Loeb s father Lucien Loeb was instrumental in articulating the vision of the Museum for the future in the 1960s and 1970s He worked actively to raise funds for important acquisitions to build the Museum s membership and to structure private funds to support the Museum s mission On April 17 1974 he was recognized by proclamation of the Museum board for his unwavering dedication and service to the success of the Museum program Mr and Mrs Lucien Loeb also gifted the Museum in 1968 its first pieces of First Period Worchester Porcelain a tea set from 1775 1785 From that initial gift Mr and Mrs James Loeb developed a collection of First Period Worchester Porcelain that has evolved over the years into a superb collection that is the highlight of the Museum s decorative arts holdings The
