Art

Robert Schultz’s art media include chlorophyll prints, scanned compositions, and handmade artist’s books that combine letterpress text and leafprints.

His artworks and poems have appeared in War Memoranda: Photography, Walt Whitman, and Renewal, a collaborative exhibition with photographer Binh Danh, from whom Schultz learned to make chlorophyll prints. Schultz’s leafprints and artist’s books are held by the US Library of Congress, the Albert and Shirley Small Special Collections Library at the University of Virginia, and private collectors in the US and abroad. His leafprints of Liljenquist Collection portraits held by the Library of Congress were featured in a LensCulture profile.

Schultz has lectured extensively at colleges and universities, and at museums, including the National Museum of Art (Washington, DC), The Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art (University of Oregon), the Memorial Art Gallery (Rochester, NY), and The Taubman Museum of Art (Roanoke, VA).

War Memoranda, the book

War Memoranda: Photography, Walt Whitman, and Memorials by Binh Danh and Robert Schultz has been published by the Taubman Museum of Art to mark the 200th anniversary of Whitman’s birth and to bring the poet’s humane example to our moment’s controversies over war, memory, and reconciliation.
