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

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

These short-term installations presented:

• 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 were open to the public on Tuesdays through Fridays, 12:00–4:00, from September 4 through 26, along with 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.
