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.
