City Rising: America in the Early Twentieth Century
WHEN: Through December 7
As the United States shifted from an agrarian to an industrial power at the turn of the twentieth century, the demands of a factory-driven economy resulted in the growth of urban centers. City Rising: America in the Early Twentieth Century presents work by artists who responded to these changes in different ways.
On view in the new Works on Paper Study Room, which is available to the public Thursday evenings, 5-10 PM, Saturdays, 10 AM-5 PM, and Sundays, 1-5 PM.

Watch a stunning video featuring Ziek and the making of one of the campus's newest art commissions.
