The Lincoln Center Vera List Art Project celebrates its 50thanniversary in 2012. It was established in 1962 by philanthropists Vera and Albert List as a way to both support the visual arts and raise funds for Lincoln Center. Since the inception of the program, Lincoln Center has commissioned more than 125 major artists of the time to create works available for sale to the public.
The latest commission, by American artist Donald Baechler, launches the Project’s 50thAnniversary commemoration. Titled Lincoln Center Globe, 2011, the 47’ X 36’ print on Lanaquarelle paper, is composed of 40 colors/screens and is quintessential Donald Baechler: a crowd of faces collected and archived over the years make their appearance, layered behind an iconic globe image, one of the artist’s favorite themes for the past several years. Lincoln Center Globe, 2011 is available in a limited-edition of 72 prints.
Donald Baechler’s print, and all of the prints from the Vera List Art Project are available for view on Lincoln Center’s website. Visit art.lincolncenter.org/to view the complete collection and to purchase prints and posters.
