$7,500 toward the acquisition of the 1967-70 painting Stroke for the museum’s permanent collection and for a brochure that will accompany an exhibition on the painter. After studying art in Chicago, Lozano moved to New York in 1960 and was close to artists such as Dan Graham, Carl Andre, and Sol LeWitt. In addition to exploring figurative work, Lozano created monochromatic paintings that investigated scientific phenomena as well as conceptual language-based drawings that served as instructions for performance pieces.
