AUBURN – In conjunction with an exhibition of his works on display at Auburn University’s Jule Collins Smith Museum, noted painter, printmaker and illustrator Rafal Olbinski will be at the museum Thursday, Jan. 15, at 5 p.m. to talk about his work. The exhibition, “New Dreams of Old Values,” will be at the museum through Feb. 28. This event is part of the museum’s Third Thursday Free Nights and is open to the public.
“New Dreams of Old Values” is a collection of recent paintings by the artist that build on a series of his works commissioned by the German periodical “Der Stern” to address issues of ethics and morality in the modern world. The works on display at the Jule Collins Smith Museum feature the artist’s recent musings on the subject, redeveloped as finished easel paintings. The exhibition is augmented by selected study drawings and a collection of Olbinski’s printed posters.
