The Paintings of Dick Morrill

The arts can be an interesting lens through which to view other academic
fields. Your students and faculty may be interested in the upcoming
exhibition “The Paintings of Dick Morrill,” whose paintings feature
scenes of social satire and political commentary in the tradition of the
Mexican mural painters Diego Rivera and José Orozco and American social
realist painter Jack Levine. Morrill also paints portraits that lay
bare the inner lives of his subjects. See additional information and
images from the exhibit, attached, and please share them with your
students and faculty colleagues.

The University Museum invites
students and all members of the IUP community to a free opening
reception for “The Paintings of Dick Morrill” on Saturday evening,
November 3, 6:00 – 8:30 pm. The artist will speak informally about his
work beginning at 6:30.

For more information, please contact me
by email or by phone: 724-463-3458. Class tours may be scheduled through
the museum’s clerical assistant, Sally Daskivich.
