Though not necessarily a household name, Minnesota-born artist Adolf Dehn helped to catalyze some of the most important movements in American art, from Regionalism and Social Realism, to caricature. Most known for his work in lithography and printmaking, he traveled throughout the world, spending time in places like New York City, Paris, and Vienna, places that would shape the way he viewed the people and locations he would capture in his prints and drawings. Over the span of his life, from his birth in Waterville, Minnesota, in 1895, to his death in New York City in 1961, he created nearly 650 images, some of which are exhibited here.
At the heart of St. Kate's are active, creative, and socially engaged women. Eight strong, local artists have captured these values in their work, communicating what it means to be a Katie. This exhibit proudly offers these underrepresented artists a chance to continue shaping the campus and community of St. Kate's.
This exhibit showcases the gems of St. Kate's: influential local women artists and their work. Clara Mairs, Cecilia Lieder, Nancy Randall, Gemma Rossini Cullen, Sr. Mary Anne Catherine, Sr. Joanne Emmer CSJ, Corita Kent, and Jo Summonick are presented. The "gems" of St. Kate's are works that represent the values of faith, leadership, social teaching and inspiration, characteristic of the institution and its academic mission. Featured pieces are by artists working along these themes within specific subject matter: circus performance, flora, flight, and faith.
