Gallery Reinstallation
2nd Floor, North Wing

Titled Seeing America: 20th & 21st Century, the new modern and contemporary galleries unveiled this spring extend the bright, open and welcoming galleries initiated with Native Artists of North America, adding expanded interpretation and an expanded emphasis on interdisciplinary themes and the breadth of the American experience.
The Seeing America project encompasses an extensive remodeling of the permanent collection galleries, featuring several new acquisitions and recently conserved major works; bilingual wall labels in English and Spanish throughout the second floor galleries; a special exhibition of new work by Los Angeles artist Matthew Brandt; and the publication of two new catalogues highlighting the American art collections.

* Into the Modern Era
* Traversing America
* Indigenous Modern
* Stieglitz, O’Keeffe, and the 291 Circle
