Congratulations to Joe Ovelman

Joe is now part of the collection of the Wadsworth Atheneum, according to Artnet.

Collectors Janice and Mickey Cartin have given the Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art in Hartford, Conn., a group of 104 photographs ranging in date from 1949 to 1983 by 12 contemporary artists: Roger Ballen, Zarina Bhimji, Edward Burtynsky, Frank Breuer, Lucinda Devlin, Olafur Eliasson, Esko Männikkö, Arnold Odermatt, Lorraine O’Grady, Joe Ovelman, Collier Schorr and Chris Verene. A selection of the acquisition goes on view at the museum in "Old Masters/New Directions: A Decade of Collecting," Aug. 6-Dec. 18, 2005.

Updated: James pointed out that the range 1949-1983 doesn't make much sense when we're talking about the work of Joe Ovelman (or Collier Schorr and Chris Verene).
