Consisting of approximately 75 remarkable works of art ranging from paintings and drawings to sculpture, photography, video, and installations by 42 artists from every region of the country, State of the Art seeks to de-mystify contemporary American art. Works of art and artists were chosen based on their innovative use of materials, their relevance to modern life, and their deep connections to their communities and present-day issues. In order to further enhance that engagement, The Mint Museum is working directly with a selection of participating artists to offer a wide range of exhibition-related programming.
