The Capital University hosts the exhibition Associated American Artists: Art by Subscription Sept. 11 through Dec. 2 at the Schumacher Gallery. In 1934, the morale of the American people was at an all-time low. During this difficult period, Reeves Lewenthal hatched a plan to form the Associated American Artists. The mission of the enterprise was to make art accessible, affordable, and attractive to Americans. During its more than four-decade span, Associated American Artists created an art series with hundreds of prints by dozens of its prominent artist members. These original impressions were available for sale for $5 each. Budding collectors sprung up across America and some of these collectors lived in and near Springfield, Ohio, resulting in this collection of limited series prints on loan from the Springfield Museum of Art. Reception: 5 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 14. (Please note: The gallery is closed Oct. 13-15 and Nov. 22-26.)
