Stuart Davis: In Full Swing is the first major exhibition in 20 years dedicated to this key figure in American modernism. Featuring approximately 75 works—spanning from the artist’s breakthrough series in the 1920s focusing on tobacco packages and household objects to the painting left on his easel at his death, in 1964—the exhibition highlights Davis’s unique ability to assimilate the visual languages of European modernism, the imagery of popular culture, the aesthetics of advertising, and the rhythms of jazz into colorful, complex works.
Adults $22, seniors 65+ $17, students with current ID $13, youth 6–17 $7, members and children 5 and under free. Prices subject to change without notice.
