Brazilian lithographs on display
DeKALB – During the month of November, The Art Box will host contemporary Brazilian lithographs from the collection of Robert Bornhuetter, professor emeritus in printmaking from the Northern Illinois University School of Art. An opening reception and gallery talk is scheduled from 2 to 4 p.m. Nov. 4.
Bornhuetter took about 12 trips to Brazil between 1986 and 2003. The population of Sao Paulo in 1986 was estimated at 12 million people – today it exceeds 20 million. Bornhuetter was expecting to see an airport with a thatched Jowood tower, dirt runways, outdated biplanes and sparse parking.
On the contrary, he found a large modern facility, modern highways, ample parking and several large airlines. Going into the city from the airport suburb, he was amazed at the 180-degree view of 15- to 20-story structures and the abundance of shops, eating places and shopping areas.
