Aboriginal Art Directory | 25.10.08

The New York times looks at Charlottesville, Virginia, and reckons that the Kluge-Ruhe is worth a visit:

10 a.m.
5) OUTBACK

For a fascinating detour little known by outsiders, visit the university's Kluge-Ruhe Aboriginal Art Collection. Twenty years ago, John W. Kluge, a billionaire media mogul, started building perhaps the largest collection of aboriginal art outside Australia, which he donated to the University of Virginia in 1997. The museum offers free guided tours every Saturday at 10:30 a.m., which are essential to understanding these stark and sometimes inscrutable works of art (400 Worrell Drive, Peter Jefferson Place; 434-244-0234; www.virginia.edu/kluge-ruhe).
