    Event Description:
    ABOUT | memento [muh-men-toh] 1) An object or item that serves to remind one of a person, past event, etc.; keepsake; souvenir. 2) Anything serving as a reminder or warning. Memento: Selected Works from the Elwood Collections will be the first chance since the turn of the century to more fully research and exhibit one of the prized collections at the Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art at Washington State University. Spanning fifty years from 1968 to 2018, the Sean Elwood Collections total over 300 objects across three distinct groupings. Originally established through a single donation of prints, the Sean Elwood Collections has grown to include examples of 20th and 21stcentury photography, drawings, video, documentation, and cultural ephemera. Highlights include works by renowned Northwest artists such as Fay Jones, Michael Spafford and Jacob Lawrence, as well as by artists known nationally and internationally, such as Robert Mangold, Joseph Beuys, Andy Warhol and Robert Rauschenberg. Organized thematically, the exhibition will offer reflections on key content areas such as minimalist gestures, performative works, non-normative narratives, as well as social satire and justice.
    The Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art WSU is located in the Crimson Cube (on Wilson Road across from Martin Stadium and the CUB) on the WSU Pullman campus.
