Legacy and Prospect: Faculty Work in Context, 1913-1963

Thursday, September 18, 2014 - 12:00pm

September 18 - October 17, 2014

School of Art Gallery (Art Building)

The School of Art Gallery at Kent State University will present “Legacy and Prospect: Faculty Work in Context 1913-1963.” The show will run from Sept. 18 – Oct. 17 in the School of Art Gallery, which is located on the second floor of the Art Building at 400 Janik Dr. in Kent.
 

Kent State’s School of Art has long been a leader in artistic research in Northeast Ohio. The only school in the region to offer an M.F.A. in studio art, and home to one of Ohio's largest art education programs, the School of Art has blazed a trail of support and guidance for the visual arts for nearly 100 years.

“As the school prepares to move to a new Center for the Visual Arts in 2016, we want to take a look back at some of our artists/faculty and the work they did during the first 50 plus years of the School of Art,” says Anderson Turner, director of galleries for the School of Art. “It’s an opportunity to pay homage to the important heritage and groundwork the school has created. We have also included in this exhibition several of the international artists that may have influenced our early faculty whose work we have in the School of Art collection.”

Artists featured in this exhibition are: Elmer Novotny, Robert Morrow, Harold Kitner, Robert Day, William Schock, Joe Wagner, Mary Ann Scherr, Hazel Janicki Schock, Barbara Morrow, Al Kieselbach, Miska Petersham, Ian Short, Marlene Mancini Frost, Robert Wick, Pablo Picasso, Paul Klee, Alexander Calder, Roy Lichtenstein, Andy Warhol, Toshiko Takaezu, Ben Shahn, Kathe Kollwitz, Ernst Kirchner, Max Beckmann, William Sommer, Henri Matisse, Marie Cassatt and Alberto Giacometti.

This exhibition was organized with the help of Professor Emeritus Richard Myers, who has spent several years compiling a history of the School of Art, and funded in part by the Ohio Arts Council.
