Co-Curator of the exhibition A Sense of Place: Abstract Art in Northern Indiana, Bob Cross will present a lecture on the impetus for the show and why he believes the art form that will define the 21st century is Abstraction, which conveys ideas rather than events. Cross’ mission to push forward the talents of abstract artists in Northeast Indiana stems from his time, in the 1970s, as a master printer at Tyler Graphics in New York City. He collaborated on producing prints with David Hockney, Frank Stella, Roy Lichtenstein, Robert Motherwell, Helen Frankenthaler, and many others. Cross connects the dots between the New York City 1950s exhibition that established the American and modern art movement to the 2020s and Northern Indiana’s impact on the abstract art.
