The UMCA celebrates the 60th anniversary of its permanent art collection, begun in 1962, with this special exhibition of 115 artworks drawn from more than 3,600 prints, drawings, photographs, and multiples — from masters of mid- and late 20th-century art to work by the leading artists of our time. Join us to explore our university’s remarkable, and sometimes hidden, visual arts resource.
