American Moderns ExhibitLocated on Kentmere Parkway and tucked away in one of Wilmington's toniest neighborhoods, the Delaware Art Museum is an art lover's dream. The museum regularly presents major traveling exhibitions, offering the community an opportunity to become familiar with a wide variety of artists and artistic movements. Smaller exhibitions, often assembled from extensive permanent collections, complement larger shows or highlight selected works.

This month, a collection of works from America's foremost modern masters will be on display at the Delaware Art Museum. Art from luminaries like Georgia O'Keeffe, Milton Avery, Marsden Hartley, Stuart Davis, Arthur Dove, Rockwell Kent, Joseph Stella, Grandma Moses, and Norman Rockwell will be showcased. Complementing the Delaware Art Museum's own cadre, American Moderns explores how these artists employed modernity through a variety of methods including the rendering of standard subjects like landscapes and still-life compositions.

American Moderns, culled from the Brooklyn Museum's highly-regarded American art collection, features over 50 works that focus on the prolific shift in American art and culture from 1910-1960.

American Moderns, 1910 to 1960: From O'Keeffe to Rockwell is on display at the Delaware Art Museum October 12, 2013 - January 5, 2014.
