The exhibition, “Those Who Taught: Selected Works by Former Humboldt State Faculty from the Humboldt Arts Council Permanent Collection,” is on view at the Morris Graves Museum of Art, 636 F St., Eureka, through Aug. 18. An Arts Alive! reception is planned for July 6 from 6 to 9 p.m.

Artwork from the Department of Fine Arts at Humboldt State University (now Cal Poly Humboldt) has long been a part of campus and community life. “Those Who Taught” features a selection of paintings, sculptures, photographs and prints by former HSU faculty members who were dedicated teachers and artists for decades.

Long before the Morris Graves Museum of Art was founded in 2000, many of these artists exhibited their work on campus, served on university committees, received teaching awards, and laid the foundation for the university’s support of the arts. Trailblazers include Maris Benson, Glenn Berry, Reese Bullen, Max Butler, Tom Knight, Mimi La Plant, David LaPlantz, Ellen Landweber, Louis Marak, Leslie Kenneth Price, Keith Schneider, Melvin Schuler, and William Thonson.

The Morris Graves Museum of Art is open to the public Wednesday through Sunday from noon to 5 p.m. Suggested admission is $5 for adults, $2 for seniors (65 and older), military veterans, and students with ID. Children under 17, families with an EBT card and valid ID, and Humboldt Arts Council members are admitted free. Admission is always free for everyone on the first Saturday of every month.
