Spring Special Exhibition at the David Owsley Museum of Art

February 21, 2022

This semester, the David Owsley Museum of Art is proud to host the traveling exhibition Body Language: The Art of Larry Day in the museum's Special Exhibitions Galleries (upstairs) as well as the Brown Study Room (downstairs). The show features more than 50 works by the figurative artist known as the "Dean of Philadelphia Painters" and explores Day’s contributions to American art from the 1950s through the 1990s. Several of his monumental, multi-figural paintings are paired with their preparatory drawings and reveal glimpses of the artistic process.

This exhibition was organized by the Woodmere Art Museum and curated by the artist’s longtime friend David Bindman, emeritus professor of history of art at University College, London.

At 4:00 p.m. on Monday, February 28, DOMA director Dr. Robert G. La France will give an overview tour of the exhibition for educators and museum friends; all are welcome, but pre-registration is appreciated.
