The Swarthmore Centennial Foundation is pleased to offer the first edition of an annual series of collectible, heirloom-quality Giclée canvas prints of iconic Swarthmore scenes. The Foundation commissioned renowned landscape artist Robert Bohné to paint a Swarthmore scene you will want to hang in your home or office and pass down to the next generation as a lasting reminder of your time in Swarthmore. For this inaugural work, Mr. Bohné chose a quintessential stretch of Park Avenue, prominently featuring the umbrellas and greenery of the parklets that were established in Summer 2020 to enable local restaurants to meet Covid-19 guidelines. Mr. Bohné's original painting, a plein air work, was painted in oil from the vantage point of the War Memorial and then refined in his studio over several months.
The Centennial Foundation is offering an inaugural run of 100 Limited Edition Giclée canvas prints signed by the artist for $180. The Giclée canvas print was created from the original by a fine art studio in Philadelphia using Archival Pigment Print on Canson Infinity Lustre Canvas. The finished size of the heirloom-quality canvas print, including the white border with the artist’s signature, is 12” x 14”. It will be ready for the frame of your choice.
The Foundation intends to offer one Limited Edition print per year of a different iconic Swarthmore scene. We encourage you to start your collection with this stunning first edition.
