Mitchell A. Wilder

  • Art in the Southwest

    The director of a museum in the Southwest is charged with responsibilities different from those of his colleagues in the East. He must work with a twofold purpose: to nourish and protect the Indian art and to encourage and exhibit the best sculpture and painting in the region. It is a big and stimulating assignment, as MITCHELL A. WILDER well knows from experience. He has been Director of the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center since 1945. This is the fifth in a series on painting and sculpture in which critics, artists, and connoisseurs will take part.
