NEW BRITAIN MUSEUM OF AMERICAN ART

Tour

Modern Art Meets L.A. Cool School

Saturday, September 23, 2017

Stuart Davis, Study for Cliche, 1957, 12 1/2 x 14 3/4 inches, Color lithograph, Gift of H. Peter Kahn

Led by a Museum docent, participants will get an in-depth look into the themes and ideas behind the works presented in our current exhibition California Dreaming: Ed Moses, Billy Al Bengston & Ed Ruscha. The tour will focus on West Coast modernism's relationship to East Coast abstract expressionism—two artistic styles that rejected the nation's ideals of art-making.
