$15,000 toward the acquisition of the 2000 mixed media drawing Money to Loan by the painter for the museum’s permanent collection, selected by museum curator Gary Garrels. Through their simple forms, flat color and line, Kilgallen’s paintings and wall installations explore the culture of immigrants, railway workers and everyday people and bring to light the personal tales and letterforms of American folk traditions buried beneath official history.
