The first ever public exhibition of The Peterson Collection of Contemporary Realist Art, Persistence of Vision includes work acquired internationally by Gregory J. Peterson since he began collecting more than twenty years ago. The approximately 75 works on view will focus on realistic representational styles. Born in Harlem, Mr. Peterson has written about Contemporary Realism and has spoken on art collecting in museums and private venues in the US and Europe. Selected works from this exhibition are in the collection of the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
