Dean Meeker: Myths and Masquerades
September 23, 2017–January 14, 2018
Dean Meeker (1920–2002) was instrumental in shaping the world of printmaking. In 1950 he established the first university class in serigraphy at UW–Madison. He moved serigraphy from the commercial realm into a wider—and established—use as a fine art process. Myths and Masquerades
presents a collection of larger-than-life characters drawn from the circus and carnival, the Bible,
literature, history, and mythology. Meeker was awarded exhibitions at prestigious venues such as the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum and the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York City, and the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. He is represented in more than 100 collections throughout the world.
