An exhibition featuring the work of world renowned artist Robert Rauschenberg is coming to Southwest Florida. The exhibit, titled “Rauschenberg: China/America Mix” runs from Oct. 22 through Dec. 17 at the Bob Rauschenberg Gallery at Florida SouthWestern State College and will mark the first solo exhibition of Rauschenberg’s work since his memorial at the gallery in 2008. Pieces selected for the exhibition highlight Rauschenberg’s fascination with China and the lasting influence the late artist’s work continues to have in inspiring art in China. We’ll explore the effect of Rauschenberg’s art and his lasting connections both to China and to Southwest Florida.
