The Aesthetic Energy of the Twentieth Century

Dale Chihuly

Lime Persian Single with Vermilion Lip Wrap
Gift of Museum Associates

Onlookers were invited to progress through a series of isms - from Expressionism to Postmodernism - in the Modern Gallery. Expanded labels on key works provided information regarding the artist, subject matter, or theoretical underpinnings of a movement. Traditional favorites included Dale Chihuly's Lime Persian Single with Vermilion Lip Wrap, Jerry Kearns' American Noir, and Lorna Simpson's Cure/Heal.
