We have two paintings by Collier in our collection. Gold Circle is an original piece, and Black Circle is a piece that was commissioned by our owners. In Black Circle, Collier adapted one of his preferred motifs-the circle-to include an allusion to the Mississippi river. This painting visualizes our sentiment at The Current that the river is a hub for creativity and life, and we showcase that midwestern ingenuity throughout our collection.
