HOWARD FINSTER (1916-2001): PRINTS and THE CLOUD PORTFOLIO
September 29, 2004 - December 19, 2004
Curated by Norman Girardot, Diane LaBelle, and Ricardo Viera
A selection of fine art and commercial prints in diverse mediums and a one-of-a kind portfolio of marker drawings on black and white photographs of clouds from the Lehigh University collection. Photography by Patti Boustany ’87.
During the late 1970s and through most of the 1980s, Howard Finster experienced increasingly frequent, vivid, and compelling visions that were displayed in his myriad and progressively more complex artworks, books, assemblages, and environmental constructions (Paradise Garden). By the late 1980s, Finster was discovered by several mainstream cultural agencies (e.g., Johnny Carson, The Wall Street Journal, the Smithsonian Institution, the Philadelphia Art Alliance, the Museum of American Folk Art, and various colleges and universities like the University of Richmond and Lehigh University- as well as alternative musical groups like R.E.M. and The Talking Heads).
