Art of American Dance

Implementation of a traveling exhibition exploring the ways in which American visual art from 1820 to 1960 depicted and was inspired by dance.

To support an exhibition, "Art of American Dance," that will demonstrate the central place of dance in America's history, culture, and identity. Organized by the Detroit Institute of Arts, the exhibition will open in Detroit, Michigan, in November 2015 before touring to two additional American venues. Approximately 100 paintings, photographs, and sculptures will help more than 75,000 visitors appreciate how American art representing the movement and performance of dance reveals the fluidity and complexity of American culture and social structures.
