The Magnificant Seven

To finance exhibitions at the Crocker Art Museum one of our fund-raising activities is “The Magnificent Seven”. We asked seven nationally know artists to create a special limited edition of 50 prints. We sell these exclusive prints at special fund raising events and to discerning collectors who may contact our organization through our website.

The original seven artists are:

Robert Brady – Serigraph
Roy De Forest – Lithograph
Kathe Keller – Lithograph
Gregory Kondos -Lithograph
Jack Ogden – Lithograph
Irving Marcus – Lithograph
Roland Peterson – Color Itaglio (sold out)

We have since added:

Larry Weldon – Color Lithograph
Viola Frey – 25 original plates (sold out)
James Estey – Exclusive poster

All proceeds from the sale of the editions are used for exhibition expenses. We expand our collection every few years.
