Landmark U.S. art centenary celebrated in Miami

September 30, 2013 by  

Several galleries throughout the United States have held special events this year to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the International Exhibition of Modern Art. This includes the Vizcaya Museum and Gardens in Miami, which will be presenting ,The Academic and the Avant Garde: Artists of the 1913 Armory Show’ as of tomorrow.

In 1913, the exhibit took place in New York City from February 17 to March 15, and was the first exhibit of modern art in America.

The Vizcay museum’s collection began with the accumulation of further works of many of the artists who took part in the Armory Show. Three of the highlighted artists of the 1913 exhibit were Charles Cary Rumsey, Robert Winthrop, and Gaston Lachaise. These artists also later created works of art specifically for the Vizcay Museum.

This exhibit will no doubt be widely publicized in the area, and will probably draw people from all over including nearby North Miami Beach. This will likely involve the museum investing in poster and flyer printing services, both of which can be easily distributed to the public or displayed in public areas.

“The Academic and the Avant Garde: Artists of the 1913 Armory Show” exhibition will be showing at the Vizcaya Museum and Gardens from tomorrow until March 31, 2014. Admission is $15 for adults, $10 for seniors and students, and $6 for those aged 6-12, and the exhibition is included in the price of admission. To learn more about what’s in store, call 305-250-9133.
