“State of the Art…feels like going on a cross-country road trip where every pit stop involves a chat with a uniquely interesting stranger.” –Star Tribune
About the Exhibition
Featuring a diverse range of working artists from across America, “State of the Art” offers a snapshot of contemporary art that examines the ways in which people innovate with materials old and new to engage deeply with issues relevant to our times.
Drawing from every region of the United States, this one-of-a-kind exhibition brings together more than 130 artworks ranging from works on canvas and paper, to photography and video, to installation art, and more. Minnesota’s featured artists are Cameron Gainer, Chris Larson and Andy DuCett.
“State of the Art: Discovering American Art Now” was organized by Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art, Bentonville, Arkansas.
