This groundbreaking exhibition will celebrate the often unknown female artists of this mid-twentieth-century art movement. More than 50 major paintings will be on view by artists working on the East and West Coasts during the 1940s and 50s including Elaine de Kooning, Lee Krasner, Joan Mitchell, Helen Frankenthaler, and others. This will be the first presentation of works by these female artists together at one time.
The exhibition features the graphic works of internationally acclaimed Colorado designers Phil Risbeck and the late John Sorbie. About 30 posters from the 1960s to the 1990s announce performances at Colorado State University, and showcase expressive techniques, energetic imagery, and restrained typography.
