Now on view, Phoenix Art Museum presents an original exhibition of rarely-shown prints, drawn from the Museum’s collection, by two giants of twentieth-century art. Rauschenberg and Johns: The Blurring of Art and Life showcases more than 20 works on paper, including lithographs, silkscreens, screen prints, and collage, by neo-Dada artists Robert Rauschenberg and Jasper Johns.

On view in the Museum’s Orientation Gallery, the exhibition provides fascinating new insight into the innovative, mutually influential practices of the two artists.
