Through a special arrangement with the Brooklyn Museum, the Springfield Museums have extended the engagement of American Moderns, 1910-1960: From O’Keeffe to Rockwell at the Michele and Donald D’Amour Museum of Fine Arts. The new closing date is now Sunday, September 7, allowing visitors an additional week to enjoy this unique and wide-ranging exhibit.
American Moderns features fifty-one paintings and four sculptures from the Brooklyn Museum’s collections that exemplify how American artists engaged the concept of modernity in the early and mid-20th century. Georgia O’Keeffe, Milton Avery, Marsden Hartley, Stuart Davis, Arthur Dove, Rockwell Kent, Joseph Stella, Elie Nadelman, and Norman Rockwell are among the artists represented with significant works that exemplify their unique contributions to modern culture. The exhibit also underscores the D'Amour Museum of Fine Art's own outstanding collection of 20th century American art, which includes works by O'Keeffe and Rockwell as well as George Bellows, Isabel Bishop, Lyonel Feininger, and Reginald Marsh, among others.
American Moderns has been organized by the Brooklyn Museum; the exhibit’s local sponsors are Field Eddy, Inc. and Lyman and Leslie Wood. MassMutual is the 2014 Premier sponsor of the Springfield Museums.
There is a special exhibition fee of $5 in addition to museum admission for all visitors ages 3 and up to view American Moderns and Life Through Time.
