The American Pop artist Ed Ruscha has donated thirty works from his personal collection to the Fred Jones Jr. Museum of Art at the University of Oklahoma. The bequest is currently on view in the institution’s Sandy Bell Gallery. Ruscha, who spent about fifteen years in Oklahoma City before moving to Los Angeles, donated an additional thirteen works to the museum last year. The institution’s impressive modern and contemporary art collection includes works by Alexander Calder, Fernando Botero, Sam Francis, Grace Hartigan, and Jasper Johns.
