‘Painting Towards Architecture’ Exhibit Planned On Campus


An exhibit of 50 paintings and sculptures which attempts to trace the impact of modern art on architecture will be held at the University Museum of Art from Sunday, April 23 to Sunday, May 14.

Prof. Jean Paul Slusser, museum director, said the exhibit is an effort by the Miller Co. of Meridien, Conn., to show how modern art can help engineers and designers.

Since architects and lighting manufacturers have to work with the same principles as the abstract painter, the Miller Co. feels that familiarity with modern abstract painting is helpful in creating space, color, and pattern arrangements, Prof. Slusser said.

The collection includes works by Leger, Arp, Picasso, Mondrian, Calder, Henry Moore, and Marin. It is entitled “Painting Towards Architecture.”

Prof. Slusser said the collection would be of interest to the general public and to architecture and design students. The Ann Arbor showing will be the only one in Michigan.
