Crossroads: Carnegie Museum of Art’s Collection, 1945 to Now
Opening July 20, 2018
Special Evening Preview: Third Thursday: Crossroads
Opening Crossroads mines the collection’s depth, diversity, and eccentricities, situating the work of artists at the intersections of history, society, politics, and biography. Instead of a strictly chronological hang, each gallery represents a chapter in the larger story of CMOA’s world-class collection.
