EXHIBITION: ‘Object as Subject’
Édouard Vuillard, The Theatre, c. 1905, Oil on panel
In celebration of Lehigh’s Sesquicentennial, Object As Subject gives nod to the university’s history of regarding art as an integral part of the classroom. The works in the exhibition reflect Lehigh’s world-class collection of more than 12,000 art objects, representing a broad range of cultures and materials.
The exhibition is on view through May 27, 2016 at the LUAG Main Gallery in the Zoellner Arts Center.
The LUAG Teaching Collection has become a laboratory for visual literacy used by students, faculty and the community, thanks to the generosity of alumni and friends.
In the exhibition, European masters such as Bonnard, Redon, and Picasso join American “Outsiders” such as Finster and Eilshemius. Pioneers of photography are seen side-by-side with Japanese prints.
