If you’re near Milwaukee any time soon take a break and visit the Milwaukee Art Museum. Through September 2010 they have a Warrington Colescott exhibit. Unfortunately I didn’t get to study under him when I was at the UW, wish I had the opportunity:
Warrington Colescott is the premier satirical printmaker working in the United States, employing his sharp wit and vivid imagination to interpret contemporary and historical events in the tradition of William Hogarth, Francisco de Goya, Honoré Daumier, and George Grosz. He is internationally respected…The Milwaukee Art Museum has the largest collection of work by Colescott.
He’s 89, still making art, and still producing relevant and thought provoking prints.
