Patriotic Prints

February 27 through May 01, 2016

Patriotic.PrintsThe Kent Bicentennial Portfolio: Spirit of Independence (1975) was commissioned by the Lorillard Tobacco Company, New York, and was printed by Ives-Stillman, New Haven, Connecticut, to celebrate the bicentennial of the United States in 1976. Lorillard, the maker of Kent cigarettes, commissioned Will Barnet, Colleen Browning, Audrey Flack, Red Grooms, Joseph Hirsch, Robert Indiana, Alex Katz, Jacob Lawrence, Marisol Escobar, Larry Rivers, Edward Ruscha, and Fritz Scholder to make a print in response to the question, “What does independence mean to me?” Additional patriotic prints will also be shown with the portfolio in the Williamson and Orientation galleries.
