Art at Colby highlights artworks that represent the full scope of the museum’s collection, with over 170 artworks and texts, including original poems, by 98 writers and artists—including Barbara Haskell, Bill Berkson, Carol Troyen, Michael Leja, Rachael Ziady DeLue, Geoffrey Batchen, Sanford Schwartz, Anne M. Wagner, Ron Padgett, Irving Sandler, and Lydia Yee. The works span the entire history of American art (with a particularly fine selection of painting from New York since 1960), and also include examples of European and Asian works. Texts by a range of scholars, curators, critics, and artists are paired with full-color reproductions of pieces from the collection: James Cuno on Henri Fantin-Latour, for instance, Rackstraw Downes on John Marin, Alex Katz on Winslow Homer, and Richard Hell on Joe Brainard.
