This flagship exhibition offers new narratives in American art history, embracing stories about women artists, LGBTQIA+ artists, and artists of color with over one hundred of the most acclaimed and iconic pieces in American art on display. Lori Waselchuk, PAFA's Assistant Director of Public Programs, will lead a gallery walkthrough that will highlight PAFA’s legacy as well as its continuing role in shaping American art of the twenty-first century.
