Special installations in memory of David Schorr and for the First Year Matters program

The DAC will begin the fall with two special installations of small numbers of selected works from the permanent collection. Both installations will be on view in the DAC gallery for the same period of time.

These short-term installations will present:

• Selected prints by the late David Schorr (1947–2018), who was a Professor of Art at Wesleyan for many years and was a long-time supporter of the Davison Art Center.

• Selected works for viewing as part of Wesleyan's First Year Matters program.

Both installations will be open to the public for limited hours: Tuesdays through Fridays, 12:00–4:00, from September 4 through 26. Please note that during this time the gallery will be closed Saturdays–Mondays, with the exception of a special viewing on Sunday, September 16, following a David Schorr memorial event.

Salon 2018, the DAC's first full exhibition for the 2018–2019 year, will open on Friday, October 5, 2018.
