Concludes Sunday, Jan. 6
Oklahoma City Museum of Art is about to wrap up an exquisite exhibit of 57 works by well-known American artists. American Moderns, 1910-1960: From O’Keeffe to Rockwell runs through Sunday, Jan. 6, and includes work by Georgia O’Keeffe and Norman Rockwell – referenced in the title – as well as Stuart Davis, Milton Avery, Elie Nadelman, Joseph Stella, Marsden Hartley, Arthur Dove and others. As a sampling of work lifted from a 50-year span, the collection from the Brooklyn Museum is unrivaled in its scope of the period. And, if it’s true that art is an exercise of the spirit, then American culture of the mid-20th century was as varied and magnificent as images it rendered. The exhibit will open next at Everson Museum of Art in Syracuse, N.Y., on Feb. 15. OKCMOA is located at 415 Couch Drive, Oklahoma City, and hours are 10 a.m.-5 p.m. every day except Thursday (10 a.m.-9 p.m.) and Sunday (noon-5 p.m.). Admission is $5-$12.
