Art Philanthropist and Collector: Allen Turner "A Good Collector"

Welcome back. It has been a minute since we last shared our journey of 100 artist, 100 collectors and events South of Roosevelt Rd.  Recently at the DuSable Museum there was an opening for the new group exhibition featuring over 25 local and nationally acclaimed artists entitled "Common Bonds". The  DuSable Museum exhibition runs through June 30th 2010. At the opening one of the featured artists Ted Ellis of Houston, Texas was present and was honored to have five of his original paintings donated to the DuSable Museum by Philanthropist Allen Turner. Please join me as we talk with Allen Turner gaining insight on how he and his wife approach activism and his definition of "A Good Collector". We also hear from Ted Ellis on his special day.

Stay tuned for the next blog! I plan to post additional videos of that wonderful evening where President Dr. Carol Adams will also talk about her passion and new role as president of the DuSable Museum .

Artistically Yours,

Andre Guichard

I enjoyed meeting the Turners. They were kind and interested in a way that people who are not selling anything seem to be. Their time is valuable and they spent a long evening with all of us in attendance. Dr. Adams is moving the museum forward and is aware that generous donors such as the Turners are part of the future of the museum. Congrats to Ted Ellis and thanks to Andre for this post and the opportunity for me to participate as an artist in the exhibition.

I want to apologize for the late reply. I have to agree that evening was simply amazing. Are institutions have so much to offer, and the Turners continue to show how important it is to share and give from the heart.
