NEU To Do
While the Museum is temporarily closed, we’ll be providing weekly suggestions for art-related projects and virtual getaways.
In February 2020, a new exhibition focusing on the influence of Mexico’s three leading muralists—José Clemente Orozco, Diego Rivera, and David Alfaro Siqueiros—on the style, substance, and direction of art in the United States made its debut at the Whitney Museum of American Art. Its theme, and several of its artists, were aligned with aspects of the Neuberger Museum of Art’s own Destination: Latin America exhibition.
Because Vida Americana was shuttered before a planned Neuberger ArtTrek could be held, this edition of NEU To Do virtually introduces visitors to the exhibition.
For those who wish to visit the show in person, the Whitney has reopened its doors to the public (timed entry tickets required with advance purchase).
Vida Americana will be on view through January 31, 2021.
If you missed the Members Meeting with Neuberger Museum of Art Director Tracy Fitzpatrick last Friday morning, you can watch a recording of the session below.
