Aboriginal Art Shines in Charlottesville

Aboriginal Art Directory | 16.05.09

The surprising Kluge-Ruhe Aboriginal Art Collection is part of the University of Virginia (which was designed by Thomas Jefferson). The small museum opened in 1997 through a gift by businessman John W. Kluge, who began collecting Aboriginal art in the 1980s and amassed one of the top private collections in the world. In 1993 he purchased the collection and archives of the late Professor Edward Ruhe, a prominent Aboriginal art collector and researcher. Ruhe’s archives comprise the core of the museum’s study center.
