Boyle Is Title Sponsor of Cloar Exhibit

2013 marks our 80th anniversary at Boyle Investment Company. As a way to celebrate and give back to the community that has supported us since our start in 1933, we are pleased to sponsor The Crossroads of Memory: Carroll Cloar and the American South at the Memphis Brooks Museum of Art June 8 through September 15.

This year also marks the centenary of Cloar’s birth. Cloar’s work truly embodies the spirit of the Mid-South, and we are pleased to partner with the Memphis Brooks Museum of Art to celebrate our anniversaries.

Below are a few examples of Cloar’s work, some actually owned by members of Boyle Investment Company and some that will be on display for the exhibit.
