Butler Institute of American Art
The Butler Institute of American Art in Youngstown, Ohio, the oldest American Art Museum in the country, has added the work of Juneau painter Daniel DeRoux to its permanent collection.

The painting "All the Joy a Good Home Brings" was exhibited in the First Western States Biennial at the Smithsonian's National Collection in 1979.

"Dan DeRoux's wonderful and whimsical masterpiece, 'All the Joy a Good Home Brings,' has brought joy to our family all the years we have owned it and will now find a permanent home in one of America's most significant art museums, The Butler Institute of American Art.

"We know it will be enjoyed and appreciated by generations to come," said Barbara Desind Kernan and Joe Kernan, donors of painting.

The painting exhibited at the Denver Art Museum, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, and the Newport Harbor Art Museum.
