The Ulrich Museum of Art boasts a nationally significant collection of modern and contemporary artworks. From Robert Henri's 1917 oil portrait of Gregorita with the Santa Clara Bowl, to Zhang Huan's photographs of his 2000 performance Family Tree; from the expressive brush strokes in Robert Motherwell's 1977 Study in Automatism to the digital animation of Jeremy Blake's 2001 video Mod Lang, the Ulrich has amassed a 20th- and 21st-century art collection valuable for both its breadth and quality. Art of Our Time: Selections from the Ulrich Museum of Art includes 57 works, the treasures culled from a collection of over 6,000. Eager to mix creative and scholarly voices, this catalogue takes an interdisciplinary and collaborative approach, bringing together the voices of art historical scholars--Toby Kamps (Contemporary Art Museum, Houston), Patricia McDonnell (Ulrich Museum of Art), Tim Rodgers (Museum of Fine Arts, Santa Fe), Robert Silberman (University of Minnesota), and Emily Stamey (Ulrich Museum of Art) and creative writers, Laura Moriarity and Antonya Nelson. In addition, a photo essay of the museum's outdoor sculpture collection by fine art photographer Larry Schwarm layers the catalogue with even more art and adds distinction to its design.
