Art Matters: American Art Part III – (1950 – 1990)

Tuesday, May 2nd – 1:00 PM
In the second half of the 20th century, American breaks free of it’s European bonds to defy convention, and then dominate the entire art world. There was an explosion of creativity on this side of the ocean. American Art grows up and demonstrates it’s own unique personality; innovative; and sometimes controversial. But whether you swear by it, or at it, it is always fun.

Join us for a look at how art in American evolved in the modern era, from Pop Art to Grandma Moses, how it took the seat of power with all its new directions, energy and nerve. You can’t “like” it all, but you may go home with more than you thought. Where in the world do you think it is going next?
