JOHN A. KNUDSEN
October 20 - November 16, 2016
This exhibition featured art by Knudsen, who was born in Brooklyn, N.Y., and as a child lived in Michigan and Chicago, moving often as his father changed jobs. His career was clearly influenced by both rural and urban settings, but it was the city that he responded to most notably. His compact, crowded images inform the viewer of the visual stimulation he encountered and embraced in bustling Midwestern urban locations.
The prints included in Vicinity were selected from a sizable collection generously donated to the Bradbury Art Museum by Sharon and Evan Lindquist.
