Andean Pre-Columbian Textiles and Artifacts
In the spring of 1995, the Fresno Art Museum introduced its audience to the pre-Columbian Andean collection assembled by the weaver Janet B. Hughes. Representing regional variations drawn from a number of cultures, the Hughes Collection of Andean Pre-Columbian Art clearly indicates that weaving was one of the earliest forms of artistic expression as well as a means of status identification for the ancient peoples of Peru.

Earth, Fire & Stone: Kenneth E. Stratton Collection of Pre-Columbian Mesoamerican Art
September of 1992 marked the opening of the Fresno Art Museum's Hans Sumpf Gallery of Mexican Art - an opening highlighted by an installation entitled Masterpieces of Mesoamerican Pre-Columbian Ceramics from the Kenneth E. Stratton Collection. The gallery was designed to give the impression of walking into a space similar in feeling to a shaft tomb as most of the ceramic artworks from Kenneth Stratton's bequest originally came from just such pre-Columbian burial sites. Prompted by Stratton's gift to the Museum, the Sumpf family contributed the necessary funds to house the collection. Because Hans Sumpf and Kenneth Stratton had been lifelong friends, it is fitting that this gallery honors the life of two remarkable men who cared passionately about their community and the vital culture of our southern neighbors.
