The Riverside Art Museum (RAM) proudly presents 90 Years of Ink | Prints from RAM’s Permanent Collection, running May 7–August 23, 2019.
“Prints have a long and important history as a medium of communication, having been used by artists for centuries to comment openly on social and political issues,” says Todd Wingate, Director of Exhibitions and Collections. “The breadth of RAM’s print collection provides us a wealth of opportunities to explore multiple processes, techniques, and points of view.”
Bringing together over 100 works drawn from RAM’s collection of prints, 90 Years of Ink features a wide variety of printmaking techniques from time-honored processes such as etching, woodblock, and lithography to monoprints created during the museum’s Monothons. Some of the prints are recent acquisitions that have never been on view as part of the permanent collection before. Concentrating on prints from 1920–2010, the exhibition coincides with the 90th anniversary of our Julia Morgan Building, which opened in 1929.
Artists in the exhibition include:
- David Alfaro Siquerios;
- Alice Baber;
- Leonard Baskin;
- Roland Reiss;
- Beatriz Mejia-Krumbein;
- Sandra Rowe;
- Sadao Watanabe;
- Andrew Molles;
