First-Ever U.S. Exhibit of Bob Dylan's Artwork to Open This Fall

Florida International University (FIU) has announced it will host the first comprehensive visual exhibition of Bob Dylan's artwork on U.S. soil.

Retrospectrum, described as the "most expansive and detailed" exhibition of Dylan's visual art, will premiere in Miami on November 30. It will open at the university's Patricia & Phillip Frost Art Museum and will feature more than 120 of Dylan’s paintings, drawings, and sculptures spanning six decades. The exhibit will be open through April 17, 2022.

On the exhibit, FIU President Mark B. Rosenberg said, “When I saw the catalogue representing the beautiful and comprehensive Bob Dylan: Retrospectrum exhibition that premiered in Shanghai in 2019, I knew immediately that I wanted to bring this iconic artist’s rarely seen visual works to South Florida, to be enjoyed by our students, our broader community and visitors from across the country and around the globe."

The exhibition will open at the same time as The Wolfsonian Public Humanities Lab's DYLAN@FIU symposium, which will explore "the myriad facets of Bob Dylan’s career and cultural influence." Both openings will be timed with Miami Art Week.

Retrospectrum is not the first exhibition to display Dylan's visual artwork. The Drawn Blank Series, opened at Kunstsammlungen Chemnitz, Germany in 2007, was the first. Dylan's art has also been shown at the National Portrait Gallery in London, the National Gallery of Denmark, the Palazzo Reale in Milan, and the Modern Art Museum (MAM) Shanghai in China.
