Director's Message

This spring the Harn
presents a marvelous
collection of modern and
contemporary art, mostly
by American artists, in our
three changing exhibition
galleries, in the Magoon
Garden and on the front grounds of the museum. -
Paradigms and the Unexpected: Modern and
Contemporary Art from the Shey ( o/ll1, tlon offers visitors
the opportunity to see beautiful works by 75 artists
ranging from early modernist painters Arthur Dove and
Georgia O'Keeffe to contemporary sculptors Magdalena
Abakanowicz and Tom Otterness. George Segal's
haunting multi-figure sculpture The Asian Picnic returns
to the S.F.I. Rotunda and George Rickey's mesmerizing
kinetic sculpture Two Lines Down F:i,. ,i Feet to the
lawn in front of the building where they have captivated
museum visitors on previous occasions. Certain other
works will be familiar to many Harn visitors because
the Sheys generously have made them available on
loan to the museum in the past, but the majority of the
works are on view at the Harn for the first time. We are
extremely grateful to the Sheys, dedicated collectors
and faithful friends of the museum, for sharing with
members and visitors to the Harn Museum of Art the
fruits of their great love for art, fascination with the
creative endeavors of artists and passion for beauty.

Please enjoy reviewing the successes of the last year in
our annual report for the 2006-2007 fiscal year, enclosed
in this publication. Join us in looking forward to another
year of growth and excellence.

Featured Exhibition

Paradigms and the Unexpected: Modern and
Contemporary Art from the Shey Collection
February 10 May 18, 2008

This exhibition of 100 paintings, sculpture and
drawings by 75 internationally renowned 20th-
and 21st-century artists is drawn from the Florida
collection of Stephen and Carol Shey. Created mostly
by artists from the United States, these works reflect
the extraordinarily diverse and innovative trajectories
of the period. The exhibition is divided in two parts,
modern and contemporary, with some overlap
between the two to allow for shared affinities between
certain works.

The section devoted to modern art features 36
landscapes, cityscapes, still life, figural subjects and
pure abstractions representing important modernist
movements in American art such as Cubism,
Geometric Abstraction, Precisionism, Realism
and Regionalism. Featured are 27 artists including
Alexander Archipenko, Milton Avery, Thomas Hart
Benton, Charles Burchfield, Ralston Crawford, Stuart
Davis, Arthur Dove, Marsden Hartley, John Marin,
Georgia O'Keeffe, Charles Sheeler and Joseph Stella,
among others.

Contemporary works include 64 objects beginning
with the extraordinary innovations of Abstract
SExpressionists working during the post-World War
II period. Other important artists represent Pop,
Minimalist and Post-Minimalist movements that
exerted an equally dynamic and world-wide influence.
Later works on view demonstrate the diverse and
innovative directions of artists working in the realm of
neo-expressionism. Featured are 48 artists including
Linda Benglis, Jim Dine, Barry Flanagan, Helen
i Frankenthaler, Hans Hofmann, Al Held, Alex Katz,
Willem de Kooning, Sol LeWitt, Joan Mitchell, Robert
Motherwell, Ken Noland, George Segal, Frank Shapiro,
Frank Stella, Donald Sultan and Betty Woodman,
among others.

The exhibition is organized by the Harn Museum
and curated by former Harn Director Budd Bishop,
SHarn Curator of Modern Art Dulce Roman and Harn
Curator of Contemporary Art Kerry Oliver-Smith, all
of whom contribute to a 236-page catalogue. Made
possible by Shands at the University of Florida, The
C. Frederick and Aase B. Thompson Foundation,
Nathan S. Collier, S.F.I., Mercantile Bank and the John
Early Publications Endowment.
