2016 Selections from the UTC Permanent Collection of Art

Curated from the University’s gift-based collection, this exhibition features work created by icons of art history alongside that of previous UTC Diane Marek Series Visiting Artists. The interplay of tradition and contemporary expansion seamlessly bridges past to present and celebrates the unique role of an academic gallery as a non-profit purveyor of ideas and discussions about broader issues embraced by the visual arts. On its whole, the exhibition exemplifies the 1960’s movements of Abstract Expressionism and of Pop Art and its European equivalents, the transition to Minimalism in the 1970’s, and the continuum of inter-relationships into the 21st Century.
