UAM Diaries: 1973-2004 The Glenn Years is a tribute to retiring University Art Museum’s founding director Constance W. Glenn. The exhibition highlights selected innovative projects that, together, paint a vivid picture of the museum’s history. The centerpiece of the UAM Diaries is the re-creation of the museum’s landmark 1977 show, George Segal: Pastels 1957-1965, the renowned artist’s first museum presentation of works on paper.
In addition, a number of exhibits that the UAM has traveled to museums throughout America, including The Great American Pop Art Store: Multiples of the Sixties; Time Dust, James Rosenquist; The Complete Graphics 1962-1992; Frederick Sommer at Seventy- Five: A Retrospective; and Lucas Samaras: Photo-Transformations will be highlighted with the return to the UAM of selected works from these projects. Also featured, will be important gifts to the collection, including works from the Hampton Collection, comprised of 88 mid-century abstract paintings. In all, more than 80 works of art by some fifty artists, ranging from Charles Arnoldi, John Baldessari, Russell Crotty, Jim Dine, Eric Fischl and David Hockney to Graciela Iturbide, Lee Krasner, Marie-Jo Lafontaine, Roy Lichtenstein, Lorna Simpson, and Andy Warhol, will crowd the galleries in a rare opportunity to see images spanning the museum’s 32-year life span.
