Art and Design: Proportion

April 18 – August 2, 2009

Ledger and Murray Galleries

This exhibition is the third in a series of exhibitions over the next two years that will demonstrate the role of the Principles of Design within artworks in the Museum’s Permanent Collection. Upcoming exhibitions will focus on Rhythm, Contrast and Movement. This exhibit will focus on proportion, which is the relationship of the size, location, or amount of an element to another part of the work or to the work as a whole.
