Current exhibition          

Painted Exchanges: Artists and Paintmakers, 1968–76

From 1968 to 1976, paintmakers Leonard and Ruth Bocour, with Sam Golden, made generous gifts to the Binghamton University Art Museum of paintings by living artists. This exhibition is a testament to the symbiotic relationship between artists and paintmakers. It celebrates a legacy of collaboration and artistic experimentation, and explores the conditions that enable the fruits of that legacy to be sustained. 

Co-curated by Andrea Kastner, Department of Art and Design, and Pamela Smart, Department of Art History.

Support is provided by donors to the Kenneth C. Lindsay Study Room Fund and to the Binghamton Fund for the University Art Museum.

Lila Katzen, 5 Reds and 1 Silver, ca. 1964, acrylic on canvas, gift of Leonard Bocour (1973.98)
