Upcoming American Moderns Exhibit at the Delaware Art Museum
New homes in Delaware – close to cultural attractions
Living in one of Darley Green's new homes in Delaware affords residents a convenient homebase from which to explore the region's many cultural and recreational delights. Situated just five minutes from downtown Wilmington, the Darley Green community has easy access to a multitude of attractions, including the Delaware Art Museum, which boasts a collection of permanent and touring exhibits to rival the world's best.
The museum is featuring an upcoming exhibition of some the most important works by 20th Century modernists. Titled American Moderns, the exhibition contains 57 paintings and sculptures drawn from the Brooklyn Museum's renowned collection.
The exhibition opens on October 12, and runs until January of next year. It tracks the changes in American art and culture during the first half of the 20th Century, featuring works by Georgia O’Keeffe, Milton Avery, Marsden Hartley, Stuart Davis, Arthur Dove, Rockwell Kent, Joseph Stella, Grandma Moses, and Norman Rockwell. The works – which date from 1910 to 1960 – are a perfect fit for Delaware’s own collection.
As an accompaniment to the exhibition, the University of Delaware Friends of Art History is teaming up with the Delaware Art Museum to present aSaturday Symposium on October 19. The event will ask the question “what does Modern mean?” and is open to UD alumni and friends. Starting at 10:30 a.m., the symposium will kick off with a presentation from Heather Campbell Coyle, curator for American art at the museum and a doctoral alumna of UD's Department of Art History.
The afternoon session features a tour of the exhibition, a lunch, and a talk by curator Terry Carbone in which she explores the changing face of modernism. The symposium concludes with paintings conservator Mark F. Bockrath exploring modernism from a technical standpoint, discussing the use of unorthodox materials and techniques to create new types of work..
