Symposium: “What’s Modern about American Art, 1900–1930?”

This two-day symposium addresses the question of American modernism through a series of brief “keyword” talks and panel discussions that investigate its manifestations in progressive painting and design between 1900 and the early 1930s. The symposium is presented in conjunction with two exhibitions at the Milwaukee Art Museum: The Eight and American Modernisms (co-organized with the Terra Foundation for American Art) and The Artistic Furniture of Charles Rohlfs. This event is organized by the Terra Foundation for American Art, the Milwaukee Art Museum, and the American Decorative Art 1900 Foundation.
