The New York Project-Rosenquist, Illustrious Works on Paper, Illuminating Paintings, Postal Plaza Gallery, 720 S. Husband St.  The first in a series of three ambitious, annual exhibitions exploring key figures who have worked in New York during the past half century, the New York Project provides pivotal teaching opportunities and engagement for the OSU community as well as the greater Midwest region.
