The Witte Museum’s renowned Texas Art Collection has been shaped by the visionary leadership of curators such as Eleanor Onderdonk, Martha Utterback, and Cecilia Steinfeldt. Each curator helped define Texas Art for the museum, the state, and the nation. In honor of the Witte Museum’s 90th anniversary and the legacy created by Alfred Witte and the Witte Picture Fund, this exhibition explores how these remarkable women shaped the collection through strategic purchases.
