A Portrait of Americana: American Life from the CMA Collection (April 27 - July 19, 2020)

 

 

Americana art reflects the charm and nostalgia of life in America. It portrays the history, traditions, artifacts, and culture of the United States - a unique slice of the American experience. Think of rural and street life, farms and factories, and the workers and families of America's history. Think also of football, fair rides, celebrity icons, and the statue of liberty - serving as a beacon of hope to many who would go on to shape American culture. Sometimes Americana art criticizes American culture, while other times it suggests a certain way of living, and a longing for those times that have past. This exhibit explores all of those themes and more,  to create a portrait of American life. On display will be work by artists such as Thomas Hart Benton, Moses Pearl, Dean Mitchell, Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, and Robert Vickrey, to name a few, all of which come from our permanent collection. You can view our entire collection here.
