Patron, Contemporaries Patron, Circle, Fellow, and Sponsor members.

In the middle decades of the twentieth century, American artists forged styles that reflected the new global prominence of the United States. At the same time, these figures, including Roy Lichtenstein, Ellsworth Kelly, and William Eggleston, engaged many of the same themes as their artistic forbearers. American Legends: From Calder to O'Keeffe, in its newest rotation, opens a window onto the dramatic changes and arresting continuities that characterize American art. During this tour curatorial assistant Sarah Humphreville will explore how American artists forged new styles in the mid-twentieth century even while addressing many of the same themes as their forbearers.
