Opportunity and Impact: Works by Émigré Artists

April 2 - September 9, 2012
David Filderman Gallery


This original exhibition examines the role of émigré artists in reshaping the nature of American art. The exhibit features artists who arrived from Europe during the early 20th century to present-day émigrés from Cuba, and South America. American art traditions and directions have been profoundly influenced by the contributions of these artists.
