Guided Tour | November 23 • 3:00p
Take a tour with FIA Curator Tracee Glab and view an exhibition of 20th-century prints by European and American artists, including Karel Appel, Jim Dine, Ruth Weisberg, and Adja Yunkers. These prints are highlights from the recent gift of Ann Arbor-based collectors Myron and Barbara Ruth Levine. As collectors, Myron and Barbara (“Mike and Bobbie”) were unified in their tastes, acquiring works that they both liked and had expressive meaning for them. They were drawn early on to collect prints, especially those of the artist movement CoBrA, a group formed in 1948 by artists from Copenhagen, Brussels, and Amsterdam, whose style was highly expressionistic.
