In Retrospect: Art Department Faculty Emeriti, 1961-2001

October 29-December 18, 2011

The year 2011 marks the 50th anniversary of the School of Fine Arts and, while the Benton did not become a part of the School until 1997, it is a part of the history of the School. Since 1967 the Museum has hosted the annual art department faculty exhibition. In celebration of the 50th anniversary, the Museum is proud to present a visual time capsule of the Art Department from 1961 to 2001. Emeriti faculty from every decade and from all across the country will exhibit work created during their time at the University, and the history of the styles, media, and individuals from these times will be recreated on the walls of the Benton.
