Bruce McCombs, professor of art at Hope College, recently had two works honored through accession or award recognition.

An etching has been included in the permanent collection of the world-renowned Philadelphia Museum of Art.  He also received a purchase award at the 2016 Kansas Watercolor Society National Exhibition of Mark Arts (formerly the Wichita Center for the Arts), which is open to all artists living and working in North America.

McCombs actively displays his prints and paintings throughout the U.S. and around the world. His artwork has been procured by many permanent collections both nationally and internationally, including the Fort Wayne Museum of Art, the Cleveland Museum of Art, the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Library of Congress in Washington, D.C., and the National Museum of Fine Arts in Hanoi, Vietnam.  A member of the Hope faculty since 1969, he holds his B.F.A. from the Cleveland Institute of Art and his M.F.A. from Tulane University in New Orleans, Louisiana.
