All the artists in this exhibition have some degree of involvement with Bush. They have seen the quality of Bush as an artist and a man. Bush respected the work of the younger artists and saw a number of them as his peers, feeling that he could learn something from them as well. Includes the essay The Heritage of Jack Bush and brief essays on thirteen artists.
