Time: 9:30 AM to 4:30 PM

Significant works by these and other artists in the exhibition exemplify their unique contributions to modern culture.Between 1910 and 1960, both American society and art underwent tumultuous and far-reaching transformations. Many artists rejected or reformulated artistic traditions, seeking new ways to make their work relevant in a contemporary context. The exhibition is organized in interpretive groupings by themes such as the city, the body, landscape, still life, and Americana, all of which explore the myriad ways in which American artists engaged with modernity.
