Weaving His Art on Golden Looms: Paintings and Drawings by Art Rosenbaum
This catalog accompanied Art Rosenbaum’s first major retrospective exhibition in 2006 at the Georgia Museum of Art, curated by Dennis Harper, with essays by Harper and Paul Manoguerra, Curator of American Art.

The catalog is illustrated with 51 full-color images of the entire checklist of paintings, drawings and prints from 1953 through 2005.

“Art Rosenbaum has a lot of fun
Playing his banjow [sic] in different tunes
weaving his art on golden looms.”
