Abingdon Art Museum Exhibits Radford University’s Postmodern Collection
RADFORD -- Thinking Postmodern: Selections from the Radford University Art Museum will be on display beginning Sept. 10 at the William King Museum in Abingdon. The collection honors and celebrates Radford University’s Centennial with a diverse collection of works by nationally and internationally recognized artists alongside local artistic talents from the region.
Many of the artists celebrated – John Cage, Elaine de Kooning, Jasper Johns, Richard Tuttle and Hannah Wilke – were highly productive in the mid-20th century, a captivating time considered the beginning and outcome of the Postmodern Era.
The public can get a sneak peek of the exhibit from 6 to 8 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 9.
On Tuesday, Sept. 21, at 7 p.m., Radford University art professors Steven Arbury and Richard Bay, co-directors of the RU Art Museum, will offer a lively insider’s point of view on collecting works from the innovative and groundbreaking time of twentieth century society; a turning point in history, and its influence on the art of today.
Thinking Postmodern: Selections from the Radford University Art Museum will be exhibited from Sep. 10, 2010 through March 20, 2011 in the museum’s Legard and United Company Galleries.
