Join Kirkland Museum of Fine & Decorative Art for a lecture and discussion celebrating our inaugural temporary exhibition, Near and Far: Contrasting Regional and National Prints from the Kirkland and Mayer Collections, on view through June 17, 2018. Ann Daley, Curator of the Frederick and Jan Mayer Collection, and Norm Anderson, collector, art dealer and Colorado art historian, will speak and lead a discussion on building a print collection.
Ann Daley will tell the story of how Denver art collector-patrons Jan Mayer and her late husband Frederick Mayer assembled their collection of prints, including those by nationally known printmakers displayed in the exhibition. Norm Anderson will speak about collecting Colorado prints, why there is such a diverse range of mediums and artistic styles in Colorado and how that relates to prints on a national basis.
Thank you to the generous sponsors of our March 1, 2018 Golden Gala!
