Premiering at the Parrish Art Museum, Roy Lichtenstein: History in the Making, 1948–1960 will be the first major museum exhibition to investigate the early work of one of the most celebrated American artists of the 20th century. The exhibition, which opened to a limited audience at the Colby College Museum of Art, will travel to the Columbus Museum of Art, Ohio, and to the Nasher Museum of Art at Duke University.
“The Parrish is thrilled to be hosting this extraordinary survey of work from the artist’s fruitful formative years and privileged to be the premier public venue for the exhibition. Roy Lichtenstein’s long history with the East End of Long Island and his deep affection for the region make this a singular occasion to celebrate his legacy as we welcome visitors from far and wide.”
