New York, New York
Intended as an "homage to New York" during the COVID-19 crisis, this exhibition documents a period of rapid industrial growth in New York City—and highlights how early modernism stylistically informed American artists as they captured scenes from this era.
Depicting the city's skyline as well as modern engineering triumphs, like the Brooklyn Bridge, these artists rendered their chosen subject matter with palpable awe.
