March 31 gallery talk focuses on Lil Picard Exhibition at IMU Black Box Theater

University of Iowa News Release

University of Iowa Museum of Art Chief Curator Kathleen Edwards will discuss her current exhibition, "Lil Picard and Counterculture New York," at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, March 31, in the Iowa Memorial Union's Black Box Theater. The gallery talk is free and open to the public.

Edwards will take the audience through the works of the exhibition, which she selected from the Lil Picard Collection and Papers, given to the University of Iowa in 1999.

"Lil Picard and Counterculture New York" opened last spring at New York University's Grey Art Gallery, providing the first major exposure for the little known feminist artist. The exhibition immerses viewers in the 1960s and 1970s New York underground art scene. The New Yorker magazine described the exhibition as "Part corrective, part window into how art makes it into the canon."

"Lil Picard and Counterculture New York" is open on the UI campus through May 27.
