The Great Reveal | Celebrating the Armory Show
Monday, November 18 from 1:30 to 2:30 pm
Location: Crystal Bridges’ Library
The International Exhibition of Modern Art was the first large exhibition of modern works of art in America. Because it was held in New York’s 69th Regiment Armory on Lexington Avenue, the exhibition became known as The Armory Show of 1913, and today is considered one of the key turning points in American art. Library Director Catherine Petersen gathers primary Armory Show items from Crystal Bridges’ library collection for your viewing; ranging from the original exhibition poster and catalog to official records produced by the Association of American Painters and Sculptors who organized the show. Join Catherine in an overview of this 1913 groundbreaking exhibition, followed by a gallery tour of American artists represented in the show. The Great Reveal is sponsored by John and Emily Douglas.
