Lasting Impressions

July 14, 2022–June 2023

How do museums build art collections? Lasting Impressions answers this question with a close look at the CU Art Museum’s collection of American prints. Among the first artworks acquired by the museum in 1940, prints continue to be a focus of the museum’s art collection. This exhibition features highlights from the museum’s 82 years of collecting prints, including new acquisitions on view for the first time.
