BOCA MUSEUM OF ART PRESENTS AMERICAN MODERNISM
Exhibiting more than 40 paintings in their permanent collection, we see art from 1920 to 1950 trying to define the "quintessentially American" idea, using competing forces of innovation and tradition. Artists, include social realists, regionalists, figurative modernists and early abstractionists, struggled to define a changing America during a pivotal period. Included are works by Vaclav Vytlacil and Richard Florsheim. This exhibit is on display from September 2nd, 2008 through March 8, 2009. Museum hours are Sat/Sun noon to 5 pm; Tues/Thurs/Fri 10 am to 5 pm; Wed 10 am to 9 pm; closed Mondays and holidays. For more information call 561-392-2500 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. The watercolor and pencil on paper pictured here was done in 1930-1940 by James Daugherty, Untitled, from Modernist Heroic Figures, 12" x 13".
