Louis Bunce: Works on Paper

November 5, 2016 – January 29, 2017

Print Study Center

Louis Bunce (1907-1983) was a rising star in American art of the 1940s and 1950s, and his silkscreen prints from this time helped transform what had been a means for mass production advertising into a medium for limited edition fine art printmaking. Organized by professor emeritus and senior faculty curator Roger Hull, the exhibition opens Nov. 5, 2016, and continues through Jan. 29, 2017, in the Print Study Center. This exhibition highlights Bunce's works on paper and accomplishments as a printmaker.
