    Museum Studies: The Artwork of Richard Heipp is a comprehensive solo exhibition featuring over sixty works in a variety of media—paintings, drawings, mixed media assemblages, and installations—, that address issues related to perception and illusion. The majority of the works focus on looking at art as the subject layered through systems of vision and the museum display. This new exhibition marks the occasion of the School of Art and Art History’s faculty member, colleague, mentor, research professor and former director Richard Heipp’s retirement after forty-years at the University of Florida. Heipp’s extensive oeuvre included in the exhibition spans the years between 1975 to present day and is exhibited simultaneously at the University Gallery and the Libby Gallery. The artworks in University Gallery feature a selection of Heipp’s artwork ranging from those first created as an undergraduate student at the Cleveland Institute of Art in 1975 to paintings created in 2018. The Gary L. Libby Gallery exhibition focuses on recent paintings from 2019-2021. The catalog for the exhibition was produced thanks the generous support of the University of Florida College of the Arts and the Office of Research.
