Prominent Art Dealer Introduces Cville to Jasper Johns
University of Virginia's Fralin Museum
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va (WVIR) -
A prominent art collector is introducing Charlottesville to one of his favorite artists.
Jordan Schnitzer has been collecting pieces by Jasper Johns for years.
Saturday he displayed several of them at the University of Virginia's Fralin Museum.
Schnitzer says the artist captures things in our everyday lives and makes you see them differently.
This exhibit is centered around numbers.
“He takes different kinds of mediums, different art techniques to convey the same theme, and because it's done through different mediums, it has a different depth, and you read it differently,” said Schnitzer. “Your eye and your body feels it and sees it differently.”
Schnitzer has exhibitions of Jasper's collection on display at more than 60 museums.
He says it's a personal mission of his to get college students interested in art.
