Modern Times: American Art 1910–1950

Wednesday, April 18 through Monday, September 3

Art Parkway District

Bright lights, big country

From jazz and the jitterbug to assembly lines and skylines: the early twentieth century was a time of great social, artistic, and technological change. Artists responded with a revolutionary language of shapes and colors. See how Georgia O’Keeffe, Marsden Hartley, Jacob Lawrence, and others challenged convention and forged bold new styles to fit the times.
