Robert Rauschenberg, Making History presents eight screenprints from MAG’s permanent collection selected from two portfolios of the Currents project: Features and Surface Series. Images and headlines referring to the Vietnam War, demonstrations and protests, Richard Nixon and other political figures, sporting events, advertising, and consumerism, all find their way into Rauschenberg’s compositions, leaving viewers with an aestheticized time capsule reflecting one man’s perspective of society during a significant, charged, and transformative moment in history.

MAG is open Wednesday-Sunday 11:00am-5:00pm. On Thursdays, we are open late with half-price admission from 5:00pm-9:00pm.
