(8th and F Streets, N.W.)

Living Modern features the stellar collection of Sam Rose and Julie Walters, who for the past twenty-five years have collected the work of Georgia O’Keeffe, Alexander Calder, David Hockney, Pablo Picasso and a host of other American and European artists who have pushed the boundaries of art. This international perspective, which illuminates cross-currents in modern art, is a first for the Smithsonian American Art Museum. The exhibition features more than seventy-five paintings and sculptures. The exhibition is organized by Virginia Mecklenburg, chief curator.
The museum will publish a catalogue to accompany the exhibition.
Living Modern is organized by the Smithsonian American Art Museum with generous support from Tania and Tom Evans.
