The (Lost) Art of Drawing

August 13 – November 13, 2011

Murray and Ledger Galleries

In our contemporary world defined by experimental art media and digital design, the simple act of drawing seems to hold a less important role in the art world.  Despite its apparent absence, drawing is still a fundamental basis for fine arts and has been reformed to relate more to preliminary sketches, printing techniques or digital design.  This exhibition includes artworks from the Museum’s Permanent Collection that exemplify how drawing remains an important component of creative process.
