(2015)The Grand Rapids Public Museum is proud to present an exhibition commemorating the 100th anniversary of the birth of internationally renowned artist Reynold Weidenaar. "Through the Eyes of Weidenaar" will showcase a large portion of the GRPM’s unparalleled collection of Weidenaar’s prints, plates, tools and personal effects. The collection, a majority of which was donated by Jay and Betty Van Andel, speaks to the history of Grand Rapids from the artist's unique point of view. Approximately 100 works by Weidenaar will be on display. The exhibition will focus on the art of printmaking and how Weidenaar incorporated local scenes, humor, and his own personal worldview into his art.
