Schneider Museum of Art

"Head XI," acrylic on linen by Leon Golub, 1963.

The museum on the the Southern Oregon University campus will exhibit “Fighting Men,” works by Jack Kirby (1917-1994), Leon Golub (1922-2004) and Peter Voulkos (1924-2000) through Saturday, June 8.

Curator Daniel Duford writes that the specter of violence and the consequences of power animate this exhibit. Voulkos' sculpture is a spectacle of brute force; Kirby's superhero comics crackle with cosmic energy; and Golub’s large-scale canvases display a similar material chutzpah as Voulkos’ vessels.

The museum is at the corner of Siskiyou Boulevard and Indiana Street in Ashland. Hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Saturday. Call 541-552-6245 or see www.sou.edu/sma.
