Vassar to Survey a Major American Artist's Deeply Personal Yet Grand-Scale Work, in the Exhibition Jim Dine Prints: 1985-2002

Since the 1960s, artist Jim Dine has transformed the images of familiar, everyday objects into powerful evocations of a range of emotions, including loss, longing, joy and wonder. His fascination with such commonplace things as bathrobes, hand tools, and hearts has found ready expression in the medium of printmaking, to which he has been devoted since the beginning of his career.
