Chicagoist: Chicago Museum Acquires Surreal Kurt Vonnegut Screen Prints For Collection

Legendary author Kurt Vonnegut's literary reputation precedes him, of course, as author of frequently formative classics like Slaughterhouse-Five and Cat's Cradle. But the Indiana native was a prolific visual artists as well; and a museum here in Chicago just landed a major collection of his work. The National Veterans Art Museum announced on Wednesday their acquisition of 31 screen-print works, which are currently on view as part of the museum's Vonnegut exhibition.
