    A Passionate Muse
    The Art of Leonard Baskin
    February 17, 2019 — May 12, 2019

Sculptor, printmaker, and illustrator, Leonard Baskin (1922-2000) was well known for his spirited visual fantasy and storytelling. He also cast his eye on the modern world, with sometimes-biting commentary on the ills of society, woven into religious or mythological scenes. This exhibition focuses on his independent prints, many of them monumental, that examine his often cynical, often hopeful view of human nature.

This exhibition is sponsored in part by U.S. Bank.
