Human Touch


The Human Touch: Selections from the RBC Wealth Management Art Collection

April 26–June 28, 2015 in the Grand Gallery

fischerOver the past two decades, RBC Wealth Management has collected more than 400 works of art that reflect the diversity of the society in which we live and work.

The 35 paintings, drawings, prints, and photographs selected for this exhibition all focus on the human body because, as collection curator Don McNeil points out, the age-old need to understand the human condition is still vital and the human form remains its most direct manifestation. Major artists such as Kerry James Marshall, Elizabeth Peyton, Vic Muniz, Hung Liu, Roy Lichtenstein, Jaune Quick-to-See Smith and Alex Soth are represented by works that are both accessible yet thought-provoking, timeless yet relevant to who we are and how we live.

RCB’s goal in sharing this exhibition is to promote art’s role in considering diverse ideas, encouraging discussion of cultures and values, promoting tolerance and understanding, stimulating abstract thinking, and supporting open discussion—all of which help build a dynamic and creative workforce.
