Donna and Howard Stone, two of Chicago’s premier art patrons, have collected works of art in all media for more than 30 years, building one of the most distinguished private collections of contemporary art in the country. Much of what they have acquired relates to advanced Minimalism and Conceptualism in the art of the 1960s and 1970s, and the various kinds of artistic practices that these movements inspired in contemporary art.

Contemporary Collecting is a compelling and detailed look at the entire collection and highlights pieces included in the exhibit, which features works by artists Dan Flavin, Felix Gonzalez-Torres, Ellsworth Kelly, Sol LeWitt, Gerhard Richter, Robert Ryman, and Franz West. Included in the catalogue are an introduction to the impressive collection by James Rondeau, an essay by Judith Russi Kirshner on notable works in the collection, and an in-depth interview with Donna and Howard Stone about their history as collectors.

James Rondeau is Curator and Frances and Thomas Dittmer Chair of the Department of Contemporary Art at the Art Institute of Chicago. Judith Russi Kirshner is Professor of Art and Design and Professor of Art History, as well as Dean of the College of Architecture and the Arts, at the University of Illinois at Chicago.
