SOCIAL SATIRE AND COMMENTARY FROM THE MUSEUM COLLECTION

SOCIAL SATIRE AND COMMENTARY FROM THE MUSEUM COLLECTION

Dec 18, 2011 to Apr 8, 2012

Drawn from the Museum's extensive holdings of works on paper, this exhibition will examine artists who comment on society by drawing attention to injustice or poking fun at the human condition. Most of these objects have not previously been exhibited at the Museum and include powerful works by Barton Benes, T.C. Cannon, Mexican master Jose Luis Cuevas, Harry Fonseca, Luis Jimenez, John Sloan, and Jaune Quick-to-See Smith.
