Exhibition Overview

American Array presents a selection of postwar and contemporary American art that highlights the museum’s significant holdings from this period. Many works familiar to regular museum visitors are on view, while others have not been on view in some time, and a few are recent acquisitions. A major work by Tom Wesselmann, Bedroom Painting No. 42, is on loan for a year from a private collector.

Artists in the exhibition include William Anastasi, Richard Anuszkiewicz, Robert Arneson, Larry Bell, Geoffrey Chadsey, Bruce Conner, Joseph Cornell, Jim Dine, Sam Francis, Leon Golub, Nancy Grossman, Al Held, Jasper Johns, Elliott Johnson, Donald Judd, Ed and Nancy Reddin Kienholz, Roy Lichtenstein, Robert Mangold, John McCracken, Robert Motherwell, Bruce Nauman, Louise Nevelson, Claes Oldenburg, Robert Rauschenberg, George Segal, Alexis Smith, David Smith, Toshiko Takaezu, Lenore Tawney, DeWain Valentine, Peter Voulkos, and Christopher Wilmarth. Works on paper will be rotated with other works periodically.
