Ever since Dr. J.W. “Bill” Wiggins, a chemistry professor and higher education administrator, retired from UA Little Rock in 2002, he’s spent his days sharing his love of indigenous North American art with the world.

The School of Art and Design at UA Little Rock is home to an auspicious collection of more than 3,000 pieces of contemporary Native American art that Wiggins has meticulously collected for nearly 50 years.

One of the most unique aspects of the collection is Wiggins’ familiarity with the artists. Considered an expert in his field, Wiggins knows many artists personally and remains friends with almost all the artists whose work is included in the collection.

His collecting days began when Wiggins first visited the Five Civilized Tribes Museum in Muskogee, Oklahoma, in late summer 1974. Wiggins grew to love the museum so much that he served as president of the board of directors for a decade.

Interior Designers George Yabu and Glenn Pushelberg Take a Heartfelt Approach to Collecting Art

One afternoon last fall, while en route to their Tribeca office, George Yabu and Glenn Pushelberg stopped by the gallery 125 Newbury. The life partners were drawn by the gallery’s Peter Hujar exhibition “Echoes,” featuring images of queer life in New York City spanning from the Stonewall riots in the 1970s and through the AIDS crisis in the ’80s. At first unfamiliar with the artist, the two quickly became avid collectors and advocates of his work.

“That period is very interesting,” Yabu told Artsy from their home in Toronto. “I just want to emphasize that the New York life in the West—the piers and the gay [community], the pact with the local police that they don’t touch them if they’re having assignations on the piers—and it was very a dangerous time…it was a very unique time that was documented by the ‘Peters’ of the world.”
