$15,000 toward the acquisition of up to four works by the painter for the museum’s permanent collection. Ramberg was born in Fort Campbell, Kentucky, studied at the Art Institute of Chicago, where she later became Chair of the Department of Painting and Drawing, and was associated with a group of artists who became known as the Chicago Imagists. Her paintings of small-scale, tightly-cropped figures in constrictive clothing, emphasis the role advertising plays in shaping the female form and intergrates a feminist perspective while celebrating a pop sensibility.
