Blue Sky is pleased to present a selection of photo-based works by renowned conceptual artist Barbara Kruger from the collections of Jordan D. Schnitzer and His Family Foundation. Rendered in the artist’s signature graphic style with bold text layered over found mass media images, the lithographs, silkscreen images, and digital prints on view communicate biting feminist and cultural critiques of consumerism and gender stereotypes.
