A Collection by William and Mary Ann Roebel at IPFW
By Eddie Torres
Fort Wayne Reader
What began with an initial purchase of a framed, limited-edition suite of four lithographs by Harold Altman eventually became the first step toward an extensive collection of original artwork for William Roebel and his wife Mary Ann. Some of the artists in their collection include Renoir, Cortès, Toulouse-Lautrec, Matisse, Whistler, Haring, Neiman, Picasso, Renoir, Rembrandt, and Dali. Selected works from their collection will be featured in an exhibition at IPFW’s Visual Arts Gallery from October 10 – November 6.
The exhibition is free and open to the public. Gallery hours are 8 a.m. – 9 p.m. weekdays and 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. weekends.
