The American Regionalists represented images of everyday life in the heart of America during the 1920s, 30s, 40s, 50s and 60s. While some East Coast critics called these artists reactionary and provincial, the Regionalists themselves often espoused progressive, populist and socialist ideals. By representing the mid-American landscape and its inhabitants, Regionalists celebrated people whose lives were often ignored in the cultural centers of urban America. A year-long exhibit in three installments, this show features prints, drawings and paintings by such artists as Thomas Hart Benton, John Steuart Curry, Grant Wood and Fred Shane.

1st installment: July 30 - November 13, 2005
2nd installment: November 15, 2005 - March 5, 2006
3rd installment: March 7 - June 25, 2006
