Gallery holds opening reception for 'BOB!'
In May of 2008, one of
America’s best-known artists, Robert Rauschenberg, died. ASU's
Bradbury Gallery will host an exhibition that is a tribute to
this significant American artist. “BOB! A Tribute to Robert
Rauschenberg” opens on Thursday, March 12, at 5 p.m. with a reception.
Both the reception and the exhibition are free and open to the public.
The exhibition runs through Friday, April 17. Rauschenberg's
non-traditional materials, from house paint to found objects,
created what he termed “combines.” This three-dimensional process,
now known as assemblage, is the style of work that brought him
prominence as an artist and remained his signature throughout his
lifetime. He was also a performance artist, an ambassador, and an
inspiration and influence for numerous artists. For
