Last week to see WATT rare poultry breed portrait collection
Art lovers and agriculture enthusiasts alike have just one week remaining to view pieces from the WATT rare poultry breed portrait collection, currently on display at the Rockford Art Museum (RAM) Art Annex.
Through Sunday, Nov. 20, visitors can appreciate the beauty of the artists’ interpretations of rare poultry breeds and learn about the company’s rich history and its contributions to the poultry industry over the past 94 years.
Hatching History: A WATT collection of rare poultry breed portraits is a select showing of pieces from the WATT collection of poultry breed paintings (1926-1950). The complete collection is composed of 57 framed oil paintings created by three American artists — A.O. Schilling, L. Stahmer and F.L. Sewell — and was commissioned by J.W. Watt, founder of Watt Publishing Company, in the mid-1920s.
The RAM Art Annex is inside Riverfront Museum Park, 711 N. Main St., Rockford. The Art Annex is open during regular museum hours, but call RAM at (815) 968-2787 prior to arrival as classes are scheduled in this space. The exhibit will be closed to visitors during scheduled class times. Admission to the exhibit inside the Art Annex is free.
