Guided Tour of A Model Workshop: Margaret Lowengrund and the Contemporaries, Offered by Lauren Rosenblum ’04 (Saturday, December 9, 3:00 p.m.)

A Model Workshop: Margaret Lowengrund and the Contemporaries is the first exhibition to explore the work and impact of Margaret Lowengrund (1902–57), the first woman in the United States to open her own printmaking workshop. Lowengrund was a visionary leader, organizer, and critic and a driving force behind the revival of artistic lithography.

Lowengrund’s the Contemporaries, a vibrant print workshop and gallery, was the hub of printmaking activity in midcentury New York City. The show brings together a diverse selection of objects, including seventy-nine prints, one sculpture, and various ephemera, by artists such as Josef Albers, Milton Avery, Warrington Colescott, Jim Dine, Gego (Gertrud Goldschmidt), David Hockney, Sister Corita Kent, Lee Krasner, Shiko Munakata, Gabor Peterdi, Liliana Porter, David Smith, June Wayne, and Adja Yunkers, among others. Co-curator Lauren Rosenblum will lead a forty-five-minute tour of the exhibition.

Lauren Rosenblum ’04 is the Jensen Bryan curator at the Print Center, Philadelphia, and a doctoral candidate in the prestigious CUNY Graduate Center art history program. As a fellow at the James Gallery, she investigates structural insecurities in academia and art museums. Prior to joining the program, she was a curatorial assistant in the department of prints and drawings at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, and a fellow in prints and drawings at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Lauren has taught art history at the University of New Haven, the University of Houston, the City College of the City University of New York, and Purchase College.
