America’s Calling

September 5, 2013 – May 11, 2014

The Gallery of American Art

America’s Calling is an exhibition of sixteen works of art by fifteen foreign born artists, including Ben Shahn, Yasuo Kuniyoshi, and Josef Albers. The artists included in the exhibition, or their families, were drawn to the United States because it offered opportunities unavailable in their homelands. A variety of media is presented in the display, including painting, ceramics, sculpture and printmaking that are handled using often innovative techniques. Cumulatively, these artists had a profound and permanent effect on the evolution of American art.
