Condolences from Georgia Museum of Art on Art Rosenbaum’s death
From the Georgia Museum of Art, reproduced:
We’ve learned that Art Rosenbaum, a painter, educator, documentarian, and more, passed away this morning. He was born in 1938 and influenced a large number of painters at the Lamar Dodd School of Art (@uga dodd art). He exposed music to those who otherwise would not have heard it. For some time, we have been focusing on the skies in his works, including this one that we recently discovered at the Bascom (@thebascom).
Most people focus on the characters in his paintings and the crowded, self-referential situations. Art regularly makes an appearance while carrying a camera.
However, the skies are frequently aflame, with colour exploding everywhere and light reflecting off the clouds. He will be much missed, and it was an honour for us to host the 2006 show “Weaving His Art on Golden Looms: Paintings and Drawings by Art Rosenbaum.” Good luck, Art.
