State of the Art: Discovering American Art Now 

When: Feb. 19-Sept. 4 2016
State of the Art: Discovering American Art Now presents a snapshot of the unusually diverse and nuanced range of artwork created by contemporary artists living in diverse communities across America today. Originally developed and organized by Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art in Bentonville, Ark., the exhibit examines how today’s artists are informed by the past, innovate with materials old and new and engage deeply with issues relevant to their communities. The artists were selected by the Crystal Bridges’ Director and curatorial team through an ambitious year-long research process that involved traveling 100,000 miles and visiting nearly 1,000 artists’ studios in rural communities, small towns and urban centers. Telfair’s exhibit features 40 of the original 102 artists selected to reflect what’s happening in American art right now.
