Event Series Event Series: Beaux Arts At 75

Beaux Arts At 75

April 16, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm

The Beaux Arts collection is an especially playful and eclectic body of work that includes everything from an idyllic summer landscape by a master Abstract Expressionist to a kitschy 1980s “altarpiece” featuring a pair of photorealistic Dalmatians. In honor of the 75th anniversary of the Museum’s original fundraiser, the Beaux Arts Ball, OKCMOA will begin to present the entirety of its Beaux Arts collection in a series of exhibitions and permanent collection installations highlighted by Beaux Arts at 75. In this original exhibition, the Museum will present long-standing favorites next to rarely seen gems, introducing an always surprising collection that includes outstanding examples by America’s famed Ashcan School artists, such as Robert Henri and John Sloan; works by American Impressionists including Childe Hassam; those of key later-generation Surrealists and Magical Realists; Postmodernists including Annette Lemieux and Fritz Scholder; and even leading figures of Pop Art and American abstraction such as James Rosenquist and Oklahoma City’s own Joe Goode. Beaux Arts at 75 celebrates the adventurous spirit that helped build this one-of-a-kind collection.
