Artists in the first half of the 20th century created a bold new visual language to capture the essence of modern American life. This course is organized around the wide-ranging PMA exhibition that re-frames examples of American Modernism in the collection, with an emphasis on painting, sculpture, prints, drawings, and photographs. The exhibition features internationally acclaimed artists who are affiliated with photographer and gallerist Alfred Stieglitz, including Georgia O'Keeffe, Marsden Hartley, and Arthur Dove, along with others who made significant contributions to the art of their day. Educators will receive the PMA catalog that is published in conjunction with the exhibition as a source material for study. Educators across all subjects and grade levels will gain a broad historical and social perspective of American Modernism through collaborative presentation, peer workshops, and conversations offered through this distinctive educational experience.
