Sydney Fossum in the Permanent Collection

Art of the Americas Building, Level 3
December 21, 2013–April 20, 2014

A Regionalist artist from Minnesota, Sydney Fossum worked for almost a decade in government-sponsored programs in the 1930s under the New Deal. His prints and drawings feature scenes of Midwestern life and political commentary. On display are a number of his finished prints, as well as the color proofs he made for each stage of Omens (1951).

Sydney Fossum in the Permanent Collection, made possible by the generosity of donor Michael Korney, provides insight into the technical and aesthetic process of printmaking from beginning to end.
