Since establishing the Lothar and Mildred Uhl Works on Paper Gallery, LRMA’s collection of contemporary prints has grown exponentially. Marking LRMA’s fifteen-year anniversary, we unveil a recent acquisition of fourteen fine art prints from Jim and Martha Sweeny, who were long-time friends of Lothar Uhl and fellow print collectors. This donation includes a cross-section of major contemporary printmakers including Louisa Chase, Donald Sultan, Brad Davis, Terry Winters, Hung Liu, Howardena Pindell and Thornton Dial. The Leepa-Rattner Museum of Art is honored to receive such a significant collection of prints and mixed media works by notable contemporary artists, including well-known African-American artists. Four mixed media works by Mary Proctor, Clint Griffin, and Lonnie Holly will also be included in the exhibition.
