Inside The Collection of Michael & John Sammler-Jones

Updated: Mar 16, 2020


We sat down to talk with Michael and John Sammler-Jones recently to chat about the artwork they have collected over the years and to find out a little bit about what has driven them to accumulate the art in their home. Michael has served as board chair at the Soo Visual Arts Center and currently sits on the board of the Minnesota Museum of American Art. John doesn’t really consider himself a collector. He tends to collect animals more than art, but has had a hand in steering their collection none the less. They describe themselves as quiet collectors with modest intentions, contrasting boldly with the wonderful and ambitious collection that adorns the walls in their home.
