Description: Please join us for the opening reception for the exhibition "Rodin: Truth, Form, Life, Selections from the Iris & B. Gerald Cantor Collections". The inaugural exhibition of the Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Art Gallery on campus in 1983 featured Rodin sculptures from the collection of the Cantors. Thirty-five years later, in celebration of the Gallerys anniversary and in conjunction with the Colleges one hundred and seventy-fifth, Auguste Rodins sculptures will again grace OKane Hall. In addition to the twenty-two sculptures on loan from the Cantor Foundation, the exhibition will feature several Rodins from the Colleges permanent collection.

In a career that spanned the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, Rodin, regarded as the father of modern sculpture, created forms that captured the vitality of the human spirit. Although respectful of sculptural traditions, the intensity of Rodins vision and his innovative studio and business practices ushered sculpture into the modern era and influenced countless artists who followed him.

This exhibition has been organized and made possible by the Iris & B. Gerald Cantor Foundation.
