|10:00 am-Apr 21st 5:00 pm||Exhibition: "Five Decades of Collecting" SHELDON MUSEUM of ART|
"Five Decades of Collecting" commemorates the 50th anniversary of the Sheldon Museum of Art’s building, which was designed by renowned architect Philip Johnson and opened in 1963. Each work in the exhibition was created and acquired after 1960.
The exhibition reflects art movements and trends from this period as well as museum directions in collecting. The exhibition highlights important gifts to the museum and draws attention to areas of strength in its holdings. The installation also celebrates new acquisitions and important works that have not recently been on view.
In honor of Sheldon's 50th Anniversary and the 125th Anniversary of the Sheldon Art Association, the SAA and the museum purchased a significant work by a major artist. The selection, unveiled on Friday, September 7th, is "Invocation" by Lee Krasner. This important painting, probably begun in the late 1960s, exemplifies Krasner’s transition in style from using expansive gestural brushstrokes to incorporating more tightly defined graphic elements such as lines and disks.
