Metal Works

January 30, 2018 – June 9, 2018


Essential to human progress, the discovery and mastery of metal has influenced diverse practices in art. Drawn exclusively from the Oklahoma State University Museum of Art collection, this exhibition examined the pervasive and varied use of metal in the visual arts. An eclectic selection of artwork illustrated the mutability of metal to suit the needs of many types of art. The exhibition included examples of Native American jewelry; a Qing Dynasty Chinese robe embroidered with metallic thread; African iron sculpture of the Bamana tradition; 19th century photographs; and Robert Rauschenberg screen prints on stainless steel.
