Member Preview » The Art of American Dance
Members are invited to preview the temporary exhibition, The Art of American Dance. This is the first major traveling exhibition to explore visual art related to the many forms of American dance. Featuring some 90 paintings, prints, sculptures, and photographs, this exhibition examines dance-inspired works from the 1830s to the 1960s—from dance in Native American cultures to ballroom dancing, to Jitterbug, swing, modern dance, and others. During this more-than-100-year period, dance engaged every segment of US society and every artistic medium, creating arenas for social interactions, popular entertainments, and artistic experimentation.
