Art Interrupted: Advancing American Art and the Politics of Cultural Diplomacy

None
Friday April 05
March 2 - June 9
Nancy Johnston Records Gallery, 
Ellen and Richard L. Sandor Gallery
 
 
In 1946, the U.S. State Department assembled an exhibition of modernist paintings created by contemporary American artists. The intent was to show the world America’s artistic coming of age, highlighting the freedom of expression enjoyed by artists in the United States. The result was Advancing American Art, an exhibition designed to combat Communism but deemed un-American by members of the U.S. Congress and President Harry S. Truman.

Art Interrupted: Advancing American Art and the Politics of Cultural Diplomacy is organized by the Jule Collins Smith Museum at Auburn University, the Georgia Museum of Art at the University of Georgia and the Fred Jones Jr. Museum of Art at the University of Oklahoma and was made possible by grants from the Henry Luce Foundation and the National Endowment for the Arts as part of American Masterpieces: Three Centuries of Artistic Genius.

This exhibition’s opening reception will be preceded by a symposium 9 am – 4:30 pm, March 1. Please see the gallery talks, lectures and other programs page for more information or download the Art Interrupted Symposium invitation here.
