Off the Beaten Track: A Road Trip through the Archives of American Art

December 8, 2017 – June 3, 2018

Archives of American Art Lawrence A. Fleischman Gallery
8th and F Streets, NW
Washington, DC

1st Floor, Lawrence A. Fleischman Gallery

Join us on a road trip through the Archives of American Art. The photographs, sketches, diaries, correspondence, and video recordings on view reveal how artists have shaped and are shaped by their surroundings, from the 1830s to the 2000s. These materials lead us off the beaten track, offering unexpected insight into local and regional histories as well as personal stories of exploration, immigration, and migration. Together, documents from all 50 states and the District of Columbia represent the diversity and depth of art in the United States.
