Tom Wesselmann (1931-2004) is recognized as a leading figure in the Pop Art movement which came to prominence in the 1960s. Within an intentionally limited scope of subject matter, Wesselmann crafted an innovative body of work that evolved constantly. This exhibition presents Wesselmann’s work at the intersection of the classical western culture that has shaped art history for centuries and the systematic and universal commodification of all things and values that defines our world today.

Building Pictures presents photographs in the Art Museum collection by Édouard Baldus, the leading architectural photographer in France during the 1850s and ’60s. Featuring images of the Louvre, Notre-Dame Cathedral, and other buildings and engineering feats throughout the country, this display demonstrates Baldus’s mastery of the new medium.
For over 130 years, the Art Museum has continuously evolved to reflect the needs of our visitors. Today we further our mission of bringing people and art together with recent renovations to our Main Lobby and Terrace Café, creating visitor-centered spaces, enhancing the museum experience. In the next year we will also welcome expanded gallery space and our new Rosenthal Education Center, providing visitors of all ages with hands-on educational activities.
