Wriston Summer Exhibition Series
July 13 to August 19, 2018
The Artwork of Joseph Friebert
Leech and Hoffmaster Galleries
Born in Buffalo, New York, Joseph Friebert grew up in Milwaukee in a Jewish working class family. A sense of loss and vulnerability after two World Wars, the Great Depression, and the Cold War permeate Friebert's artworks, but they also reflect the beauty and range of human experience. This exhibition will showcase works by Friebert in the Lawrence University permanent art collection that were donated by the Kohler Foundation, Inc. of Kohler, WI.
The Wriston Summer Exhibition Series is an annual summer exhibition in the Wriston Art Galleries intended to engage the Fox Valley community in a conversation about artworks and artists of the Midwest.
