How can someone as supernaturally talented as midcentury American artist Gray Foy go unnoticed for so long? Critics, curators, and fellow artists adored his imaginative, meticulous meditations on nature. His eye and hand rival virtuoso artists of any period. Only recently has he received renewed attention and respect. In this talk, Robert Cozzolino, Curator of Paintings, Minneapolis Institute of Art, will explore the many ways Foy observed and changed the world around him.
Visitors interested in viewing Foy’s drawings on display in the exhibition Hyperreal: Gray Foy are encouraged to arrive early.
