Permanent Art Collection
William Meddick Permanent Art Collection
The Milford Arts Council has a history of purchasing works of art for the Permanent Art Collection, selected by jurors from exhibits it sponsored annually. Other works have been donated to the City of Milford or to the Arts Council. Today the Collection consists of some 200 works that are on view at the Parsons Government Complex, City Hall and at the MAC.
In 2012, the Collection was named in honor of William Meddick, Executive Director of the Milford Arts Council for over 30 years, who inaugurated the Collection and is responsible for its breadth and depth. Marion Morra is curator of the Collection.
Murals created during the early 20th Century can be viewed at Parsons Complex, Fannie Beach in Woodmont, and at the Naugatuck Avenue Church. This slide show reflects a sampling of the art in the Collection.
