The Driek & Michael Zirinsky Gift

In 2020, collectors Driek and Michael Zirinsky gifted 19 works of contemporary art to the NEHMA collection. The Zirinskys, who began collecting more than 40 years ago while in graduate school, live in Boise, Idaho, and are among the most important contemporary art collectors in the region.
The Zirinskys’ focus on artists from the northwestern United States aligns well with NEHMA’s collection emphasis on art of the 20th and 21st centuries from the western United States, and their gift strengthens the Museum’s holdings of contemporary artists from this region.
