From June 10 to Aug 20, the Kimball Art Center is showing a collection of prints from minimalist sculptor and video artist Richard Serra. Serra is best known for his massive, site-specific sculptures he's been commissioned to create for numerous architectural, urban, and landscape settings around the globe, making him one of the most significant artists of his generation. Typically filling the space in which they are placed, Serra's sculptures offer viewers the opportunity to move around and interact with them. 

But rather than a massive sculpture installation, his exhibition at the Kimball, appropriately called Richard Serra: Prints, shows a different perspective on the artist's work. With more than 45 years of experimentation in the medium of printmaking, these black and white prints showcase many innovative techniques and, although you won't be able to move through them, they still represent a highly evocative version of these physical experiences. This exhibition is drawn from the collections of the Jordan D. Schnitzer Family Foundation.

After seeing the Serra exhibit, you may even feel inspired enough to take a printmaking class at the Kimball. A list of the art center's summer classes and camps for all ages can be found here.  

The exhibit is free and open to the public and will be on display at the Kimball Art Center's main gallery at 1401 Kearns Blvd. during the center's regular hours from June 10 - August 20.
