$7,500 toward the acquisition of the drawing Final Color Rubbing (1972) by the sculptor for the museum’s permanent collection, overseen by museum curator Gary Garrels. Trained as a graphic designer and based primarily in California, Overby began his career as an abstract painter. His later work evolved into monumental wall hangings and sculptures made from latex casts of architectural structures such as doors, cabinets and walls.
