Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center at Colorado College will exhibit “Fluid Expressions: The Prints of Helen Frankenthaler, From the Collections of Jordan D.

Brenda Cronin, writes of Jordan D. Schnitzer’s “teaching collection” of prints.
“I would hope that every student at every community college, every college and university, would make going to an art museum…part of their ordinary campus experience,” he says. He wants to bring art to people in remote areas and break down “the psychological walls that a museum is for someone else, some elitist few.”
In addition to growing his art collection he has grown Harsch Investment Properties, a company founded by his farther, Harold, in 1951.
Schnitzer says he finds pursuing real estate and art equally thrilling. The hunt, for properties or prints, is what propels him. “It’s wonderful to have the passion for wanting and never be able to get everything that you want,” he says, “because that would be pretty sad.”

“The theme represented in this exhibition, social justice, is the most important discussion all of us in the country need to have with each other,” says Jordan D. Schnitzer. “We continue to proudly support the Hallie Ford Museum and our numerous collaborations together.”
Blayklee Freed with the Tulsa Voice writes of the transformation Mel Bochner’s work has taken over the years. Bochner initially followed abstract impressionism and pop art and slowly evolved as he began using numbers and playing with perspectives.
“If we look nationally about how we talk to each other, about discourse, about words and what they mean or do not mean, there is no one better in the art world today than Mel Bochner,” Schnitzer said. “[His work] forces us to deal with our thoughts and our words.”
