LIMITED EDITIONS: 20th Century Prints from the Ponderosa Collection
In 1987, The Dayton Art Institute acquired the contemporary art collection of Ponderosa, Inc., the Dayton-based chain of steak restaurants now based in Dallas, Texas. This collection of more than 300 contemporary American paintings, sculptures, prints, drawings, and photographs offered a virtual survey of American art in the second half of the 20th century.
Nearly 100 works on paper from the Ponderosa Collection will be on view – many of which have not been publicly displayed in years. Among the lithographs and screenprints are works by Jasper Johns, Helen Frankenthaler, Claes Oldenburg, and Frank Stella.
