THENOW: Contemporary Prints, Historical Perspectives
Curated by: Jerald Krepps and Margaret Bussey
October 12 – November 11, 2010
Opening Reception: Wednesday, October 13, 6:00 p.m. – 8:30 p.m.
More than 30 contemporary North American artists are exhibited combined with works drawn from the Weisman Art Museum collection to demonstrate how past printmaking has influenced these contemporary artists. There will be 30 historical works by Hiroshige, Piranesi, Hogarth, Daumier, Goya, Picasso, Lasansky, Myers, Posada, Orozco, and others. These have been chosen with the particular contemporary works in mind and should yield interesting cross-comparisons.
Tuesday – Saturday, 10:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m.
This event is part of the Fall Art Tour:
