Crosscurrents: Modern Art from the Sam Rose and Julie Walters Collection

October 30, 2015 – April 3, 2016

Living Modern features the stellar collection of Sam Rose and Julie Walters, who for the past twenty-five years have collected the work of Georgia O’Keeffe, Alexander Calder, David Hockney, Pablo Picasso and a host of other American and European artists who have pushed the boundaries of art. This international perspective, which illuminates cross-currents in modern art, is a first for the Smithsonian American Art Museum. The exhibition features more than seventy-five paintings and sculptures. The exhibition is organized by Virginia Mecklenburg, chief curator.
