Altered Skyline: Brenda Berkman’s Thirty-Six Views of One World Trade Center [Working Title]

This exhibition is currently in the planning stages. It will feature a comprehensive series of 36 lithographs by contemporary artist Brenda Berkman. Berkman is not only an alumna of St. Olaf College, but she was also a firefighter for the New York City Fire Department and a first responder during the 9/11 attack. In 2008, after retiring from the NYCFD, Berkman began to make prints, specializing in stone lithography and copperplate etching. In addition to Berkman's work, the show will also feature some comparative examples of historical prints that have influenced her process. The show will be accompanied by a series of events meant to engage with the St. Olaf College community and beyond. (Independently curated by Christina M. Spiker).
