A visitor favorite since her first appearance in 1984, Linda, is returning to the DAM after a long hiatus. Last on display at the DAM in 2009, Linda has since been kept in darkened, climate-controlled storage to ensure her preservation.

This exhibition also features two other sculptures by John DeAndrea, Clothed Artist and Model, and Nude with Black Drape. The latter is a newly completed work.

Colorado artist John DeAndrea–“a master of illusion” according to Gwen Chanzit, curator of modern art at the DAM–is internationally celebrated for his hyperrealist nude or partially dressed human figure sculptures that are typically posed in true-to-life positions, pushing the boundaries of realism to the extreme.
