Word Art: A Poetry of Shape

From the Collections of Jordan D. Schnitzer and His Family Foundation

Exhibition Website

Feb 16 2018 - Jul 22 2018

Word Art will offer a concentrated perspective on the important subject of the use of words in visual art. Including examples by some 30 artists, the exhibition will comprise works that feature a word or series of words with strong connotation and visual impact. By using words that convey a multiplicity of meaning, these artists encourage the viewer to consider all the subconscious nuances of the word(s), which can range from punchy, comedic and subversive to iconic and poetic. 

 The exhibition includes such artists as John Baldessari, Banksy, Louise Bourgeois and Crash, among many others.
