EXPLORE THE DAC FOUNDATION COLLECTION and view more than 100 WORKS from the collection using our new online database.
The DAC FOUNDATION COLLECTION consists of more than 700 works of art. The focus of the collection is work by Southern artists associated with the historic Dixie Art Colony and other closely related organizations such as the Alabama Art League and the Watercolor Society of Alabama. The Foundation holds the most extensive collection of DAC-related artwork and ephemera known to be held in any other institution or private collection. The collection also includes a limited number of works from a movement referred to as the Cleveland School, other American and European artists, and Decorative Arts. The online database of artwork is organized according to the artist's name and category. Where possible, photographs of the artists and biographical sketches are included. Using tag links, the collection can be sorted by artist and by category.
While the DAC Foundation Collection will continue to focus on Dixie Art Colony-related work, the foundation has also begun collecting artwork by artists associated with closely related organizations such as the Alabama Art League, Watercolor Society of Alabama, and others. THE COLLECTION DATABASE IS A WORK IN PROGRESS. By the close of 2021, we hope to have more than 50 percent of the collection entered into the database and viewable online.
