All Month Long:

The Art of Asian Languages

Tues-Sat 11:00 am - 4:00 pm, OSU Museum of Art, 720 S. Husband St. The OSU Museum of Art is pleased to introduce The Art of Asian Languages on view through June 10, 2017. The exhibition of 40 works explores intersections between art and written language in contemporary East Asian culture. Representing a variety of styles and media, the artworks convey not only the complex cultural heritage of calligraphy and bookmarking in traditional Asia, but they also respond to recent changes in Asian politics and social environments. The OSU Museum of Art organized this exhibition in conjunction with the Museum Exhibition course taught in the spring 2017 at OSU. It was curated by Shaoqian Zhang, Ph.D., Assistant Professor of Art History, in conjunction with four students: Micah Firestone, Ellie Fuksa, Cheyenne Myers, and Kathryn Woodard.

 

Robert Rauschenberg's World

Tues-Sat 11:00 am - 4:00 pm, OSU Museum of Art, 720 S. Husband St.  In the late 1950s, Robert Rauschenberg, along with Jasper Johns, laid the groundwork for the Pop Art movement and for artists such as Andy Warhol and James Rosenquist.  Rauschenberg's early work ranges from performance art to something that became known as combines - paintings and occasionally sculptures that integrated discarded objects from everyday life.  He also began making prints in the 1960s, going on to become an accomplished printmaker.  Robert Rauschenberg's World includes two mural-scaled, mixed-media prints on stainless steel as well as a selection of photo lithographs on paper.  Dating from the 1960s and 1990s, these works represent two important periods of experimentation and innovation in Rauschenberg's career.  Rauschenberg's art can be found in major collections around the world including the Metropolitan Museum of Art (New York), the Museum of Modern Art (New York), the Art Institute of Chicago, and the Dallas Museum of Art.  He was the recipient of numerous awards including the National Medal of Arts, the Leonardo da Vinci World Award of Arts, and Distinguished Humanitarian Donor from Doctors Without Borders.
