Shaping America: Selected Works from the Permanent Collection of American Art

Exhibition Website

Mar 22 2013 - Mar 2018

This reinstallation of the Museum’s permanent American collection allows visitors to interpret our ever expanding collection in new ways. The exhibition examines American identity, emphasizing the multicultural perspective intrinsic to the American experience. It showcases 80 works of art, including painting, sculpture and photography.

The exhibition will elicit reflection on the role of the artworks as they reveal and contribute to cross-cultural encounters and exchanges in the formation of American identity. The new show will replace American Dreams, the last iteration of our permanent collection.
