With over 17,000 objects in the museum’s permanent collection, there are many amazing works that visitors rarely get to see. Take a peek into the vaults and off the walls each Monday with a new Art Abstract!
February – Der Traum Heisst Verlangen
Happy February! This work was featured as the month of February (hence the number ‘2’) in the deluxe, signed edition of the 1972 calendar published by Edition Domberger. Der Traum Heisst Verlangen, translates to “A Streetcar Named Desire.”
Robert Indiana is an American artist closely associated with the Pop Art movement. He is well-known for his easily recognizable LOVE sculptures, one of which can be found at the University of Oklahoma campus outside the visitor’s center. If you want to see an Indiana print in person, stop by the FJJMA this month! Indiana’s screen print of Love, 1968 will soon return to the museum walls.
