The Johnson Collection

154 W. Main St.
Spartanburg, SOUTH CAROLINA 29306
Hailed by "The Magazine Antiques" with having staged a “quiet art historical revolution” and expanding “the meaning of regional” through its “exhibitions, loans, publications, and institutional partnerships,” the Johnson Collection seeks to illuminate the rich history and diverse cultures of the American South. With holdings that offer an extensive survey of artistic activity from the late eighteenth century to the present day, the collection works to advance interest in the dynamic role that the art of the South plays in the larger context of American art. Located in Spartanburg, the Johnson Collection is the recipient of the Governor’s Elizabeth O’Neill Verner Award for the Arts, South Carolina’s highest honor in the field. Sharing the Southern art it stewards is central to the Johnson Collection’s mission. Exhibitions travel to national museums of note; at home in Spartanburg, TJC Gallery features rotating presentations, the AC Hotel Spartanburg showcases modern paintings and sculpture, and other loaned works are available to the public at partner institutions across the city.
