Final Destination

African Modernism in America | On View through May 19

African Modernism in America features more than 60 dynamic and vivid works of art created in Africa during the 1950s and ‘60s. Co-organized by the American Federation of Arts and Fisk University Galleries, the exhibition explores the relationships formed between African artists and American patrons, artists, and cultural organizations amid the interlocking histories of civil rights, decolonization, and the Cold War. 

A Breath of Fresh Air

Nature Inspires Rarely Seen Works in the Taft Collection | Now On View!

With their colorful petals, rippling water, and cloudy skies, the artworks in this exhibition invite contemplation of the natural world. Immerse yourself in crisp seaside sunshine or among ancient ruins at twilight. Swim along with ducks in a leafy pond or stroll through a pocket-sized garden. The six paintings and five works of decorative art in A Breath of Fresh Air come from the museum’s collection, but due to limited space in the museum’s room-sized galleries, they rarely go on public view.
