The Boston University Art Gallery and the Boston University School of Visual Arts co-presented the first major retrospective exhibition of Sidney Hurwitz, Professor Emeritus of Art at Boston University in 2009. The exhibit featured prints and etchings spanning the last five decades of the artist's career, ranging from early woodcuts and figure studies of the late 1950s to the intricately rendered etchings of industrial architecture for which he has become well-known and continues to pursue. This illustrated catalogue of the show features an essay by Patricia Hills, Professor of American Art at Boston University, entitled "Sidney Hurwitz's Meditations on the Industrial Age." A rare opportunity to get a signed copy of the catalog.
