Among the greatest strengths of MDC Museum of Art + Design’s Permanent Art Collection are works by artists who are categorized within the movements of Minimalism, Pop Art of the â€˜60s & â€˜70s, Conceptual and Contemporary Art. The Influencers II: 1966 -1988 highlights some of the collectionâ€™s most important and significant works of art by artists created within the span of just over 20 years. Collecting since the establishment of Miami Dade College in 1960, the two main galleries, located at the Collegeâ€™s North and South (now Kendall) campuses, hosted exhibitions and acquired works by many influential artists during this period including Joseph Beuys, Louise Nevelson, Claes Oldenburg and Purvis Young, to name a few.Â The works on exhibit in The Influencers II: 1966â€“1988 is an encyclopedic overview of artists formally recognized in art history anthologies who illustrate the current era. From Andy Warhol, Joseph Beuys, Donald Judd and Alex Katz to Keith Haring, Roy Lichtenstein, Christo and Lynda Benglis, the artists and their work changed the shape of artistic practice and defied odds to form historyâ€™s most arresting and defining work.Â Opening to the Public:Â Wednesday, April 16, 2014 during regular museum hours.
