The collection is on loan by the Jordan Schnitzer Family Foundation. "So, this exhibition is about sensory almost overload, if you come in, if you look around there's color and energy and passion everywhere," said Susanne Orton, vice president of marketing and communications of the foundation.
Art professionals say having prints like these in Dubuque is special. "Many times you have to travel to a big urban city to see art like this, pop art. Both the caliber and the size of some of these works is really unique," said David Schmitz, executive director of the museum.
