ART AT THE ORIGIN: THE EARLY 1960s

Within five years of its opening in 1961, the Rose Art Museum housed one of the most daring contemporary art collections at a university. 

This exhibition celebrates the museum's formative period by displaying paintings, sculptures and prints created during 1961-66. 

Key works by Roy Lichtenstein, Ellsworth Kelly, Claes Oldenburg, Willem de Kooning, Robert Rauschenberg, Andy Warhol and Marisol are displayed in newly renovated spaces.
