The Nora Eccles Harrison Museum will host "Abstraction and the Dreaming: Aboriginal Paintings from Australia's Western Desert," Sept. 12-Dec. 12, 2015.

With fewer than 600 in existence, the "Papunya boards" (1970s) have a singular status within the history of Australian Aboriginal art. The works include both the early paintings on boards and later paintings on canvas and are on loan from collectors John and Barbara Wilkerson, New York (John is an alumnus of Utah State University); Dennis Scholl, Miami; Julie Harvey, Idaho; and Stephen Luczo, San Francisco.
