Global Art of the 1970s: From the SC Johnson Collection

November 9, 2019 - January 26, 2020

Free

This exclusive exhibition features works selected from the private collection of the SC Johnson Company, most of which have never before traveled outside the Council House, the company’s international conference center in Racine, Wisconsin. The collection was built throughout the 1970s by Karen Johnson Boyd, the daughter of H.F. Johnson, Jr. and curator Lee Nordness. Along with Nordness, Boyd sought to build a collection that echoed the international mission of the center and that would offer visitors to the Council House a glimpse at the most cutting-edge works of the moment. The result is a renowned collection entailing exemplary art from around the globe, most produced in the 1970s.  Featuring works in all media and crossing all stylistic and geographic boundaries, this Polk Museum original exhibition offers audiences a deep dive into rarely seen art from one of the most consequential decades in art history.
