Museum of Art Spring Open House

Location: Museum of Art, Pavilion
Event Type: Reception
A festive reception to celebrate the opening of Per Kirkeby: Paintings and Sculpture as well as other spring exhibitions.
Danish painter Per Kirkeby (born 1938) is one of Europe's most celebrated contemporary artists. Kirkeby's early training as a geologist is evident in his richly layered, gorgeously colored canvases that seem constantly in flux. With his Scandinavian sensibility Kirkeby articulates responses to the Northern landscape that will resonate with audiences in the Northeast. The Phillips Collection, Washington, D.C., organized this first survey of his work in the United States. The Bowdoin College Museum of Art is the only other venue of this important exhibition. On view through July 14, 2012. Supported by the Stevens L. Frost Endowment Fund, Lowell Innes Fund, Coco Kim and Richard Schetman P '13, Karl R. Philbrick Art Museum Fund, and the Katharine J. Watson Fund.
