Graphic Appeal: Modern Prints from the CollectionAugust 15, 2015 - November 29, 2015
The Heckscher Museum acquired its first prints in the 1960s, during a period that witnessed an unprecedented exploration of printmaking that has continued unabated through the present day. As 20th century artists responded to the visual appeal of graphic design, they experimented with traditional process and developed new techniques, fostered by the collaborative atmosphere of print studios that were established across the country following World War II. This Permanent Collection exhibition features a selection of landscape, figurative, and abstract work produced using a variety of traditional and modern processes. Featured artists include Romare Bearden, John Steuart Curry, Stuart Davis, Red Grooms, Risaburo Kimura, Robert Kipniss, Roy Lichtenstein, Henry Moore, Claes Oldenburg, Robert Rauschenberg, Emilio Sanchez, Tom Wesselman, and many others.
Graphic Appeal is sponsored in part by Suffolk County.
