Block Party: Community and Celebration in American Art

This exhibition uses the World War I innovation of the urban block party as a lens to view artists’ ideas on celebration and community. Flowing through multiple galleries in the Museum like a parade, Block Party includes works from twenty-eight artists and one collective of makers that span generations and disciplines. Artworks range from room-sized painting installations and large-scale videos to extraordinary examples of historical American art, and the exhibition comprises collection works alongside loans from artists’ studios and distinguished museums and foundations from Arkansas and Illinois to New York, Massachusetts, and South Carolina.
