BAM is pleased to stage our booth with a suite of three prints by celebrated artist Shinique Smith. In 2015, Smith generously designed these editions in honor of the retirement of BAM’s former, long-time president Karen Brooks Hopkins. Titled Beautiful Dreamer,Abiding Light, and Magnetic Beam, each image uses Smith’s signature blend of collage, found imagery and calligraphic form to visualize words of affirmation and describe a beautiful creative force.
Alongside Smith’s work, BAM is honored to feature a selection of noteworthy benefit editions from the past decade. Including works by renowned artists Kim Gordon, Carmen Herrera, Maira Kalman, and Deborah Kass, each edition was created to provide vital support for BAM’s artistic and educational programs.
