"Changes: Art in America 1881/1981, the President's Exhibition, 1981, coincides with Marquette University's Centennial Celebration. The exhibition includes paintings one might have seen during an exhibition when the University opened in 1881, and also a selection of works illustrating recent development in American art of the kind one finds in 1981. The theme of "changes in American art" focuses on the uses of the human figure as seen through the eyes of forty-eight American artists working primarily in a realist tradition."
