Rose Art Museum to Open Two New Exhibitions

On October 7th at 6:00 PM the Rose Art Museum will open two distinct exhibitions. “WaterWays,” an exhibit exploring art that utilizes water as subject, metaphor and muse, will be mounted in the Rose, Fineberg and Lee Galleries. William Kentridge’s video “Tide Table” will be a centerpiece. “Regarding Painting” will be shown in the Foster Wing and will emphasize paint as an act and an object.

Founded in 1961, The Rose Art Museum of Brandeis University is an educational and cultural institution dedicated to collecting, preserving and exhibiting the finest of modern and contemporary art. The programs of the Rose adhere to the overall mission of the University, embracing its values of academic excellence, social justice, and freedom of expression.

An active participant in the academic, cultural, and social life of Brandeis, the Rose seeks to stimulate public awareness and disseminate knowledge of modern and contemporary art to enrich educational, cultural, and artistic communities regionally, nationally, and internationally. The Rose affirms the principle that knowledge of the past informs an understanding of the present and provides the critical foundation for shaping the future. It promotes learning and understanding of the evolving meanings, ideas, and forms of visual art relevant to contemporary society.

2011 marks the fiftieth anniversary of the Rose Art Museum at Brandeis University. Born from the dream of Brandeis President Abram Sachar and two generous supporters, Edward and Bertha Rose, in its relatively brief life, the Rose has assumed a place of prominence as the leading collecting museum of modern and contemporary art in the region.

Opening Reception October 7th, 2010 6:00pm- 8:00pm
