Leonard Baskin and Politics: An Exhibition on the 100th Anniversary of His Birth



R. Michelson Galleries (132 Main Street, Northampton, MA 01060, Northampton MA)

August 15, 2022 marked the one hundredth anniversary of Leonard Baskin’s birth; a century rife with political strife and violent conflict. Much of Baskin’s work was overtly political. He constantly gravitated towards the marginalized; always illuminating the plight of the persecuted and exposing the tyrant, though aware of how easily the oppressed could become the oppressor. Please join R. Michelson Galleries on Friday, September 9th from 6-8 pm for the Reception of Leonard Baskin: Baskin and Politics
