125! 125 Masterworks from the Collection

September 26, 2020-January 17, 2121

Continuing the celebration of the 125th anniversary of the CRMA, this exhibition looks at 125 masterpieces drawn from our own collection.  Works which normally do not hang together because of their diverse subjects or styles will coexist in an exuberant display of the CRMA’s treasures. Pieces by Grant Wood and Marvin Cone are joined by those of important early African-American artist Henry Ossawa Tanner and American Impressionist Carl Frieseke.  Roman treasures will be on view alongside modern and contemporary masterworks.
