      • Stone, Silence and Speech: Sculptures by Sy Gresser
      • Katzen Sculpture Garden
      • VSPACER
      • Over more than six decades, Sy Gresser (1926-2014) wrestled with issues and ideas that define humanity. Beginning as a poet, he metamorphosed into a sculptor of stone and wood. If nothing is more silent than a stone, Gresser’s chisel, harnessed to his voracious mind, yielded a distinct vocabulary that interwove abstraction with figuration and produced a continuous, broadly-focused and eloquent ...more

      • YES! Glue: A Half-Century of Collage by Bruce and Jean Conner
      • Katzen Museum First Floor Exhibition
      • Bruce and Jean Conner sustained separate but related explorations within the tradition of surrealist collage. She initiated in the mid 1950s wry combinations of images from popular magazines.
