The Great Lincoln! Memorial Tableaux

On February 12, 2009 Abraham Lincoln turns 200. A multitude of celebrations are planned, many of them incorporating fine art projects. On February 6, Philadelphia’s Art in the Age of Mechanical Reproduction opens their tribute show The Great Lincoln. Extending their partnership with The Historical Society of Pennsylvania, the store invited artists to be inspired by the Society’s collection and submit entries for the show. The celebrated winners have produced some rather remarkable work, including Richard Sajas “Young Lincoln” (Cotton Embroidered on Linen) seen above. All the work will hang until the end of the month. A limited edition print will also be available through the run of the show.

View the print, more art from the show and the exhibit flier after the jump.
