Adult Summer Program Series

Are you a fan of Robert Rauschenberg? Then join us for Rauschenberg-inspired programs this summer at The DPL!

The Cedars Union is collaborating with the DPL to highlight the library’s permanent collection of art. This summer, we are featuring the work of Texas-born artist Robert Rauschenberg.

Rauschenberg worked in a wide range of mediums that included painting, sculpture, printmaking, and photography over his long career. He pushed the boundaries of art and artmaking by often using easily accessible, low-cost, or “found” materials to create unique works of artistic expression.

Join art historian and CU's Director of Programs, Consuelo Gutierrez along with art librarian Tiffany Bailey for a Talk & Tour of the DPL permanent art collection. We will be spotlighting Rauschenberg’s mirrored Plexiglass serigraph prints "Star Quarters, I-IV" that are on display on the 2nd floor of the library.

Afterwards, you can join a cardboards workshop to create your own Rauschenberg-like cardboard sculptures at 2:30pm in the Lillian Bradshaw Gallery on the 4th floor.

This special summer program series will be held at the J. Erik Jonsson Central Library in downtown Dallas.
