An art student at the University of Louisville in the 50’s, Bob Thompson produced well over 1,000 works, many of them monumental in scale and ambition. Although Thompson has been the subject of many exhibitions across the country, including a major retrospective at the Whitney Museum in 1998, he is still not well known in his hometown of Louisville. Seeking Bob Thompson will reintroduce the city of Louisville to one of its brightest talents through an exhibition of his works.
Friday, November 2, 6-9pm, Cressman Center for Visual Arts – Public Reception and Curator’s Gallery Talk in conjunction with the First Friday Trolley Hop.
