Like all museums, the Samuel Dorsky Museum of Art depends on the generosity of others when it comes to expanding its permanent collection. This exhibition focuses on a representative selection of both two-and three-dimensional artworks created by artists from around the world which have come into the museum's collection from 2008 through 2012. A short list of artists includes W. Eugene Smith, Andy Warhol, Richard Hunt, Dorothy Dehner, Harold Edgerton, Mary Frank and Utagawa Hiroshige.
In our post-modern society, the art world is both more connected and more fragmented than ever before. New York City, once the capital of that world, is now just one of a network of regional centers spanning the globe. And close-up, contemporary practices appear to be a mash-up of disparate concepts, political agendas, media, and styles. Fields of Vision explores how art and design being made by full-time Department of Art faculty at the State University of New York at New Paltz fits into this local/global picture.
Faculty, students, staff, administrators, and friends of the college will gather for a night of revelry at an unforgettable masked ball! Join us as we “look back” to celebrate the end of the school year and kickoff graduation weekend. Accentuate your party attire with a flourish from a bygone era. Express your inner Dandy. Does the Great Gatsby look of the 1920's or the chic couture of 1950's Paris call to you? Perhaps flamboyant Glam Rock and the platform-soled era of the 1970's is more your vintage.
