Suzanne Foley, curator of the exhibition, “Roads Taken: 20th-Century Prints and Drawings from the Collection,” will give a gallery talk on Sunday, Sept. 28, at 2 p.m. in the University of Virginia Art Museum.

The exhibition, a selection of work on paper from the museum’s print and drawing collections, reflects Foley’s interest in contemporary art and her association with different contemporary artists during her museum career, which began in 1955. Foley joined the U.Va. Art Museum in 1987 and has played a major role in building the museum’s contemporary art collection.

Several of the works included in the 20 pieces on view have never been exhibited at the museum and some have rarely been shown.

Included in the exhibition are works by Chryssa, Jim Dine, John Ferren, Howard Finster, Johnny Friedlaender, Nancy Graves, Robert Indiana, Luis Jimenez, Ellsworth Kelly, Sol LeWitt, Tom Marioni, Robert Motherwell, Nathan Oliveira, Alison Saar, Jaune Quick-to-See Smith, Pat Steir, Wayne Thiebaud, Joe Tilson and Kara Walker.

The museum is open Tuesday through Sunday, 1 to 5 p.m. Limited parking is available behind the museum.
