Art critics call new Rose exhibition 'astounding' and 'spectacular'

'How We Would Drive'"The Rose at Brandeis: Works from the Permanent Collection," the new exhibition presented by Brandeis' Rose Art Museum, is receiving high praise from local art critics. The show, which coincides with the publication of the first comprehensive catalog of the Rose collection, features many of the museums's gems, including works by Pablo Picasso, William Avery, Paul Cezanne, Jasper Johns, Robert Motherwell and Roy Lichtenstein.

The Boston Globe's Sebastian Smee says the show "provides a true look at the scope, coherence, and sheer distinction of the Rose's permanent collection," while Metrowest Daily News art critic Chris Bergeron calls the exhibition "ambitious" and "spectacular."
