"Schoonover Surprise"
2003-07-30 until 2003-09-07
Biggs Museum of American Art
Dover, DE, USA United States of America

Two grimacing clerks, feather quills in hand, peer suspiciously at a youngster seated in front of a new-fangled machine called a typewriter. A medieval court- jester starts with astonishment and fear as a suit of armor comes to life. A middle-aged man dances a lively jig in a tavern. These are only a few of the paintings in Schoonover Surprise!, an exhibit featuring images with elements of humor and surprise in Frank E. Schoonover's magazine illustrations from the first decades of the twentieth-century.

This selection is comprised of paintings and drawings from the Schoonover Fund and private collectors. This show adds a playful dimension to the Biggs Museum's diverse collection of the local Delawarean's work. Come enjoy this unique exhibit from Wednesday, July 30 through Sunday, September 7.

Programs and exhibitions at the Biggs Museum of American Art are made possible, in part, by grants from the National Endowment for the Arts, and the Delaware Division of the Arts, a state agency committed to promoting and supporting the arts in Delaware. The Delaware Division of the Arts provides technical and financial assistance to artists and arts programs and serves as a clearinghouse for information on the arts.
