Exhibition Website

Feb 26 2017 - Aug 6 2017

American artists of the early 20th century sought to interpret the beauty, power, and anxiety of the modern age in diverse ways. Through depictions of bustling city crowds and breathtaking metropolitan vistas, 25 black-and-white prints in this exhibition explore the spectacle of urban modernity. Prints by recognized artists such as Louis Lozowick and Reginald Marsh, as well as lesser-known artists including Mabel Dwight, Gerald Geerlings, Victoria Hutson Huntley, Martin Lewis, and Stow Wengenroth, are included in this exhibition.

Whether or not you go, Swing Time: Reginald Marsh and Thirties New York is the first major assessment of the work of "American Scene" artist Reginald Marsh (1898–1954) in thirty years, covering his art and photography. It puts Marsh's exuberant depictions of urban daily life within the context of the economic uncertainty of 1930s America and the work of fellow artists who shared his interest in the New York scene.
