Skip to main content Archie Musick, Folk of Long Ago

Notes from the Musick Collection

August 3, 2019 - April 5, 2020

Archie Musick was a lively figure in local history who had close ties to many prominent figures at the Broadmoor Art Academy (BAA) and Fine Arts Center (FAC), memories of whom are colorfully chronicled in his memoir, Musick Medley. First a student at the BAA and later at the FAC, Musick assembled an astonishing collection of works on paper as a result of collaborative efforts and trades with colleagues over the years. In collaboration with his daughter, Pat Musick, Notes from the Musick Collection will feature selected prints from the Musick family collection presented alongside informal notes.
