American University Museum at Katzen Arts Center

Born in Louisville, Kentucky, Kenneth Victor Young (1933-2017) moved to Washington, DC in 1964 where he began to paint abstract forms with washed acrylics on unprimed canvas. Young’s artistic philosophy was to bring order out of chaos. His studies in physics and the natural sciences at Indiana University informed a different imagery—a fusion of brilliant colors.

Squire Broel

American University Museum at Katzen Arts Center

A selection of Broel’s life-sized to monumentally-sized totemic bronze sculptures creates space for reflection and contemplation about what it means to be human, be engaged as an individual within community, and interact intentionally with the natural world. In his series of vertically oriented structures, Broel references tangible and intangible notions that resonate universally: botanical and architectural structures, environmental rhythms, physical and emotional solitude.

American University Museum at Katzen Arts Center

Eduardo Carrillo’s (1937-1997) artwork has been described as mystical, realistic, surreal, and visionary.
