According to Saginaw Art Museum Director, Michael Kolleth, “What excites me most about being able to feature this amazing exhibition is that Anthony and Davida have put together a world class collection of artwork with cultural resonance and historical importance.  There is a sense of focus and composition in each of the pieces they have purchased over a relatively short period of time; and they pulled it all together with strength of intelligence and wise investing.”
