How Do You Figure?

March 16 – August 20, 2018

Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art will be closed Monday, May 13, to prepare for the visit of Antiques Roadshow. We will return to normal hours of operation Wednesday, May 15.

A focused exhibition space within the first Early American Art Gallery will feature rotating artworks opening with How Do You Figure? The works in this exhibition are from the permanent collection and span the 1700s to today, offering a variety of approaches, styles, and media for depicting the human body. The examples are rich and varied, from fully finished paintings to preliminary sketches and feature many artworks on view for the first time. Comprised of 35 works, the exhibition offers visitors a chance to explore the complexities of process and anatomy.
