Selections from the Permanent Collection from June 20 - August 17
This exhibit was curated with the assistance of student interns Lisa O'Donnell and Anya Jeninga. Working with the idea of selecting examples from the collection that fit our motif we organized an exhibit that includes some collection highlights like two Andy Warhol prints along with pieces that are not regularly on display. Examples of paintings, prints, ceramics and sculpture make for a well rounded exhibit. Works on display come from a diverse variety of artists including several outsider artists exhibited side by side with more traditionally trained artists. The majority of the artists are from the Us, but we do include a piece by Chinese artist Liu Bolin and an African Barber Shop sign.
Recent additions to the collection, like a newly acquired Kiki Smith print acquired through the Madison Print Club, will be rotated in over the course of the exhibit.
