About the Show
Nancy Graves: A Memorial Exhibition brings together seven works from the Art Center’s permanent collection by the artist Nancy Graves. The exhibition commemorates the artist’s career fifty years after her graduation from Vassar College in 1961. After earning a BA in English Literature and French from Vassar College, Graves went on to receive her MFA from Yale University. The varied scope of her work will be represented in the exhibition, including sculpture, paintings, prints, and films. This group of works spans two decades of her career and offers insight into Graves’ acute awareness for that ways in which diverse media can express aesthetic possibility within the form and function of natural phenomena.
