Kluge-Ruhe Aboriginal Art Collection of UVa
Charlottesville, VA

About the Museum
The Kluge-Ruhe Aboriginal Art Collection of the University of Virginia is the largest collection of Australian Aboriginal Art outside of Australia, and came into being in 1997 through a gift by American businessman, John W. Kluge. Influenced by the Dreamings exhibition in New York, Mr. Kluge began collecting Aboriginal art in 1988. Over the next decade he compiled one of the finest private collections of Australian Aboriginal art in the world. In 1993, Kluge purchased the collection and archives of the late Professor Edward L. Ruhe of Lawrence, Kansas.

Exhibitions:
  • Australian Aboriginal Art from the Kluge-Ruhe Collection
    • Through August 2011

  • Reko Rennie: Patternation
    • Through April 4
