Celebrating the 50th Anniversary of Lincoln Center Twentieth-century masterpieces from two world-renowned collections Praise for Art at Lincoln Center "Perhaps no cultural institution in America has the significant breadth of Lincoln Center. A forerunner in the presentation of opera, ballet, music, and theatre, it is no less remarkable for its burgeoning art collection and its long history of working with many of the most prominent visual artists of America. The artwork in its collection is as varied in media and expression as the artists themselves: Elie Nadelman, Jasper Johns, Helen Frankenthaler, David Hockney, John Currin, and Marc Chagall, to name but a few, are the artists whom Lincoln Center has worked with in its mission to bring the finest of the arts to an appreciative, worldwide public." -Donald Marron President Emeritus, Museum of Modern Art "For the last forty years, the Lincoln Center/List Print and Poster Collection has provided Lincoln Center with an ongoing endowment that benefits the patrons and the artists equally. It is truly unique. I am proud that I have been asked to contribute twice to this program, and I know that all the artists who have participated feel the same way. The quality of the works donated to Lincoln Center is an enduring legacy of the great programming and the devotion of Lincoln Center to the marriage between the visual arts and the performing arts." -Donald Sultan Contributing Artist, Lincoln Center List Art Collection "The creation of the Lincoln Center public art collection was a unique labor of love on the part of the Lists and the other art world visionaries who supported their effort. The important artworks located across the Lincoln Center campus, from Calder to Chagall, form a first-rate collection that has been overlooked for too long. The founders of Lincoln Center wanted not only the best in the performing arts but also the highest quality in the visual arts." -Agnes Gund President Emerita, Museum of Modern ArtRiley, Charles A., II is the author of 'Art at Lincoln Center' with ISBN 9780470284940 and ISBN 0470284943.
