Modern & Contemporary Art

Artists of the 20th and 21st centuries have both questioned and built on the traditions of the past. They have analyzed the underlying structures of visual art, experimented with new materials, created new styles, and explored different subjects from those of earlier generations. Students will be introduced to some of the art movements of this time period, including abstraction, expressionism, surrealism, and conceptual art as they investigate the question, “What is "modern‟ about modern art?” This tour is aligned with state content standards for history/social science for grades 10 and 11 and visual arts standards for all grades.

Suited for: Grades 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12

Capacity: 120 students
