The World Through My Eyes: Celebrating the Legacy of Ben Shahn
In celebration of the University Galleries’ 40th anniversary, this exhibition commemorates Ben Shahn (1898-1969), who was perhaps the most important social-realist artist to have emerged in the early 1930s in the United States. Shahn is the namesake for our building, the Ben Shahn Center for the Visual Arts, and this exhibit will showcase works from WP’s art collection as well as loans from the public and private collections. This exhibition is supported in part by a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts. Exhibiton webpage.
