Rodin
..on exhibit through December, 2000

Auguste Rodin
(1840-1917)has been described as a consummate genius of Classical sculpture, and as the father of Modern sculpture. Born in France, where he spent his entire life, one might wonder what Rodin has to do with the history of South Central Washington. But, through his friendship with two Americans, the dancer Loie Fuller and the businessman Samuel Hill, a unique collection of Rodin's work eventually found a home at the
Maryhill Museum of Art on the banks of the Columbia River near Goldendale, Washington. Now, for the first time, the entire Maryhill collection of Rodin sculpture is coming to Yakima for a spectacular special exhibition.
