Third Drawer Down Studio in collaboration with The Robert Rauschenberg Foundation present a collectable set of button style badges featuring iconic works from the artist. Originally designed to sit alongside the 2017 MoMA retrospective Robert Rauschenberg : Among Friends which celebrated over 250 works across mediums from his six-decade career. We love that Rauschenberg challenged the tradition of Abstract technique by bringing 'stuff' from the everyday world into his art.
Part proceeds from the collection go back to the Foundation.
About the Artist

He had a lifelong commitment to collaboration, working with performers, printmakers, scientists, writers and artisans from around the globe. Rauschenberg also stood behind many causes ranging from environmental protection to the role of art in education to the connection between freedom of expression and human rights.Today, Rauschenberg’s work is not only heralded by curators and art historians, it remains highly influential and relevant to a new generation of artists.
