From Warhol to Whistler, See How Printmaking and Photography Collide During This Exhibit

Ready to be amazed by art? Sheldon Museum of Art’s comprehensive collection of American art includes prominent holdings of 19th-century landscape and still life, American Impressionism, early Modernism, geometric abstraction, Abstract Expressionism, pop, minimalism, and contemporary art. Now, the museum invites you to check out their latest exhibit, “Convergence on Paper: Printmaking and Photography from Piranesi to Pop,” this Saturday!

Surveying Sheldon’s collection of works on paper from the late eighteenth to the late twentieth century, this exhibition presents selected instances when printmaking and photography are in dialogue with one another. With focus on moments in which the two practices intersect—in terms of function, aesthetics, and technique – “Convergence on Paper: Printmaking and Photography from Piranesi to Pop” highlights their affinity for one another and the rewarding results of experiments and innovations by artists including Robert Rauschenberg, Andy Warhol, and James McNeill Whistler.

Sheldon Museum of Art's landmark Philip Johnson-designed building houses the collections of the Sheldon Art Association, founded in 1888, and the University of Nebraska. Together, the collections include nearly 13,000 artworks in diverse media. Through its collections, exhibitions, and programs, Sheldon Museum of Art inspires inquiry and discovery, serving the University of Nebraska, the state, and beyond.

This weekend, make plans to attend the Sheldon Museum of Art’s newest exhibit! “Convergence on Paper” will be on display through December 31, 2019. Admission is free. For more information, please visit
