LINCOLN CENTER COLLECTS TO OPEN AT THE ANN NORTON SCULPTURE GARDENS IN WEST PALM BEACH JANUARY 7 – FEBRUARY 17, 2009


Exhibit Features Works by Mike Cloud, Jim Dine, and Helen Frankenthaler


Lincoln Center Collects, a selection of works from Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts’ renowned List Art Print & Poster Program, will travel from New York City to the Ann Norton Sculpture Gardens in West Palm Beach for an exhibition from January 7 through February 17. The Lincoln Center Collects prints will be mounted in all three rooms of the Norton home, which is listed in the National Register of Historic Places. More than 20 outstanding screen prints by such acclaimed artists as Mike Cloud, Jim Dine, Helen Frankenthaler (a new release), Melissa Meyer, and Donald Sultan will be on view in the residence, along with numerous other works from the List Catalogue.


In addition, sculptors Jane Manus and Thomas Lollar, Director of Visual Arts at Lincoln Center, have collaborated on the creation of five new marble and steel works that will be exhibited in the Sculpture Gardens as part of the show. Each artist will bring together the elements that distinguish their work in new outdoor pieces. Manus, known for her geometric sculpture and unique modern sculptural furniture, is widely exhibited throughout the United State, with many of her works in public and private collections. Lollar is an internationally renowned ceramist and former professor of fine arts whose work on ancient maps in ceramics has drawn noted attention. His works have been featured in gallery exhibitions at Tiffany & Co. NY and Columbia University, as well as in the collections of The Smithsonian/Cooper Hewitt Museum and The Museum of Art and Design.


The Lincoln Center/List Poster & Print Program

Lincoln Center’s List Poster & Print Program was established in 1962 by Albert and Vera List not only to make contemporary art available to the public, but also to ensure that the artwork created for Lincoln Center is of the highest quality. The collection consists of high-grade prints created by prominent artists including Roy Lichtenstein, Wolf Kahn, Julian Schnabel, and Jennifer Bartlett, among many others. The works commemorate Lincoln Center presentations such as Great Performers and Mostly Mozart, and special events such as the opening of the Metropolitan Opera.


The print series of each work is signed and numbered in pencil by the artist. Each print is a serigraph, with each color coming from an individual screen. This method combines hand-drawn and mechanical techniques, and is closely supervised by the artist during the process. At the end of each limited run (approximately 108 prints), all screens are destroyed, which prevents duplication and increases the value of the works.


Aptly described as a history of the graphic arts in America, the List Collection currently holds more than 200 works, and the stature of its participating artists has given pieces in the catalogue a consistent record of appreciation for collectors. Recent works added to the collection include those by Robert Cottingham, Jim Dine, Jay Kelly, Melissa Meyer, and Donald Sultan.


List Exhibitions

Selections from the List collection have been exhibited throughout the U.S. and Europe, and are included in the Library of Congress as well as in notable public and private collections. List prints have been part of Art Basel Miami Beach every year since 2003, and On Paper: Lincoln Center/List Art Collection is currently on view at the corporate headquarters of Credit Suisse in Manhattan. Upcoming shows are scheduled at the Somerhill Gallery in Durham, NC (January 09); the Karen Lynne Gallery in Boca Raton, FLA (March/April 2009); and the Hamilton-Selway Gallery in Los Angeles, CA (May 09).


The Lincoln Center/List Poster & Print Program is non-profit, with general sales proceeds going toward the support of Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts, Inc., and the Program itself.
