The Winter Art Show

June 2024
1min read
It’s been nine years now since our first Winter Art Show, and the editors feel that this one is as eloquent as any of its predecessors about the tenor of American life. As before, we drew its components from broadcast sources: the woodcarving at left, for instance, accompanied a story on its sculptor in Timeline , the beautifully produced magazine of the Ohio Historical Society; the frozen Gee Bee appeared amid the Deco dazzle of Sanford Smith’s annual Modernism show in Manhattan; the Moran was part of the art exhibit at the 1893 Chicago world’s fair and was retrieved for the Smithsonian’s centennial show called “The White City Revisited.” The works are as various as their sources- and, for that matter, as the nation that produced them.
