A PRODIGAL STORY FOR THE MARKETPLACE
The Remondini and Eighteenth-Century Print Culture
November 1 - December 17, 2013
From November 1 - December 17, the Center Art Gallery at Calvin College presents A PRODIGAL STORY FOR THE MARKETPLACE: The Remondini and Eighteenth-Century Print Culture. Drawing on the college’s own Prodigal Son series of six prints from the Italian Remondini firm, and coupled with other loans of prints and printed materials from various sources, this exhibition seeks to address the swelling visual culture of eighteenth-century Europe.
This exhibition grew out of a collaboration between Craig Hansen, associate professor of Art History, and Paula Manni, a 2013 Art History graduate of Calvin College. With the assistant of exhibition director Joel Zwart, the pair curated this exhibition and created an online catalogue to accompany the exhibtion. For more information please visit the website.
