In honor of Huntingdon’s 250th Anniversary, the JCMA is proud to present the ORIGINAL portrait of Huntingdon founder William Smith, painted by renowned artist Gilbert Stuart around 1801-1802. This spectacular (and large!) painting is graciously on loan to us from the Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art in Bentonville, Arkansas. The exhibition also features portraits from Juniata’s history, and invites visitors to think about whose faces will appear in the future of Juniata and Huntingdon.
