Botero @ the Katzen

Fernando Botero

In a new post by Jack Rasmussen, the director of the Katzen Center at American University, says that he is bringing Fernando Botero's Abu Ghraib paintings to the Katzen in the fall (November 6 to December 30). This is great news, as I have wanted to see this series since hearing of them a year ago.

These are images quite different from the exaggerated puffy forms of the well-known Colombian artist, who usually paints and sculpts a much more light-hearted vision of life. Congratulations, Jack! This should be a very successful exhibit.
