Morton Kaish: A Print Retrospective

Nov 8, 2021 through Feb 5, 2022


Organized by Vanja Malloy, director and chief curator of the museum and Morton Kaish ’49, the retrospective presents an overview of Kaish’s exploration and love of the print medium.

Spanning over seven decades, the exhibition of 31 prints of varying media highlights Kaish’s mastery of traditional and emerging techniques, starting with an early drawing Kaish created as a student at the University in 1945, through his experimental years in Italy and culminating in the dramatic color and patterns of his current “Butterflies” series.

The exhibition and related programs are free and open to the public. In accordance with the New York City mandate, all visitors aged 12 and older must show proof that they have received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine.  Masks (age 2+) are required for all visitors.
