Print and Drawing Cabinet: A Decade of Collecting
Date and TimeWednesday, April 20, 2011
- West Wall Gallery, Eberhard Center, Pew Grand Rapids Campus
A Print and Drawing Cabinet (PDC) is a collection of fine works on paper. Grand Valley State University’s PDC was established with an important gift of more than 300 original prints by Dutch artist, Cyril Lixenberg. In 2002, the collection was further enhanced by the Brooks family’s donation of 500 prints by contemporary Dutch artists. One year later, faculty members Ann and David Keister pledged a gift of several hundred Master Printer’s Proofs by contemporary American artists.
The collection has continued to grow with numerous acquisitions including original broadsides by Mexican artist Jose Guadalupe Posada, works on paper by the influential Russian Mitki artists, Olga and Alexander Florensky, Chinese Calligraphy by modern masters, the Tyler gift of Prints, Indian Miniatures and donations from the noted contemporary printmaker, Steven Sorman.
Held in conjunction with Grand Valley State University's 50th Anniversary.
