Rudy Pozzatti: An Indiana Treasure

November 13, 2014 through April 12, 2015


Master printmaker Rudy Pozzatti earned both a BFA and MFA from the University of Colorado, where he studied under Max Beckmann and Ben Shahn.  In 1954, he held his first major exhibition at the Art Institute of Chicago.  He began teaching at Indiana University in 1956, and developed one of the leading printmaking departments in the United States.  His work is in many private and public collections, including The Art Institute of Chicago, Boston Museum of Fine Arts, Museum of Modern Art-New York and the Art Museum of Greater Lafayette.  His eleven-color etching, “Apollo” is featured in the ArtSmart: Indiana educational program and this exhibition is a salute to one of America’s premier artists.
