If you haven't seen American Art's exhibition Modern American Realism: The Sara Roby Collection, it's time do come on down to the museum. The show closes this Sunday, August 17.
Following World War II, with the accent of Abstract Expressionism, still life painter, Sara Roby encouraged artists to make figurative work. In 1952 she created a foundation to purchase and exhibit this work. After Roby's death in 1986, her foundation donated the work to the American Art Museum. The show includes seventy paintings and sculptures from the collection.
