CONRAD MARCA-RELLI, 1913-2000
AMERICAN, Born: Boston, MA

EDUCATION: Cooper Union, New York, 1930

TEACHING: Visiting Critic, Yale University, New Haven, 1954-55, 1959-60; University of California at Berkeley, 1958; Artist in Residence, New College, Sarasota, Florida.

AWARDS: Logan Medal for Seated Figure, 1954, Art Institute of Chicago.

Conrad Marca-Relli's achievement has been to raise collage to a scale and complexity equal to that of monumental painting. Beginning in 1953, Marca-Relli accepted the potential risks inherent in collage and developed it as a complete pictorial system essentially without precedent in modern art. (Marca-Relli, William C. Agee, Whitney Museum of American Art, NY, 1967, p.9)

The Plattsburgh State Art Museum is comprised of over 4,500 works of art, representing numerous regions of the world, from the ancient to the contemporary. Works are displayed within our three main galleries, an outdoor sculpture park and exhibition areas throughout the campus. These facilities produce over twenty-five exhibitions a year of both a national and regional nature. Expanding upon the pluralistic ideal of Andre Malreaux's concept of a "Museum Without Walls," the Plattsburgh State Art Museum has become an open visual art resource for the College and the Champlain Valley/Adirondack Region.
