Museum Speakers Bureau To Offer Presentation On American Art

CRANFORD—The Newark Museum Speakers Bureau will visit the Cranford Community Center with a PowerPoint presentation on American Modern and Contemporary Art on Wednesday, Dec. 7, at 7 p.m.

The Community Center is located at 220 Walnut Avenue. Sponsored by the Friends of the Cranford Public Library, admission to the program is free and all are welcome.

The presentation will cover developments in American art over the past 100 years, including the 1913 Armory show, which introduced the American public to modern arts, and inspired American artists to carve a new, independent identity.

Featured artists will include Stuart Davis, Berenice Abbott, Sol Lewitt, Duane Hanson, Chakiah Booker, Faith Ringold and many others.
