Join us for a gallery reception celebrating the fall 2018 exhibitions.
Join us in the gallery to view art conservators at work! A team of conservators from the Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Foundation will be examining, documenting, cleaning, inpainting, waxing and preparing the sculptures for the fall exhibition, Rodin: The Human Experience.
In the 1970s, Professor H. Daniel Smith obtained some 70 Mithila painters from the Madhubani region of northern Bihar. In the early years of this tradition moving from the clay walls of their homes to paper, these paintings are an historical record of a major painting tradition. By the 21st century, the tradition had evolved in style and content. Renowned painter Shalinee Kumari will discuss the differences in thought and style between the early traditions on paper and the modern works by herself and her compatriots.
Explore Auguste Rodin and his connections to the SUArt Collection with associate director/ curator David Prince through artwork installed on campus. Examine several sculptures by noted students of Rodin including Ivan Meštrović whom Rodin once called “the greatest phenomenon amongst sculptors.”
The tour will begin at the SUArt Galleries, and is weather permitting.
