Dallas art collectors donate their works to the Tyler Museum of Art

Posted: Updated:

TYLER ( KYTX) - The Tyler Museum of Art is displaying a special viewing of works recently left to the Museum by the late Dallas art collectors Sonny Burt and Bob Butler.

Sonny and Bob filled their house with art they collected together for more than 55 years.

While dramatically varied in subject matter and scope, their collection placed a strong emphasis on Texas artists and contemporary art.

The Butlers bequest allowed the Tyler Art Museum to select six pieces from their collection.

The TMA was one of only three museums to receive such a bequest.
