Global Connections: Miguel Covarrubias, Isami Doi, Aaron Douglas, and Winold Reiss

February 4 – July 21, 2024

By comparing the styles and biographies of four artists who crossed paths in New York during the 1920s, Global Connections traces the complicated channels of influence and inspiration within the often-overlooked multiculturalism of American art before the Second World War. 

This exhibition is made possible through support from the Terra Foundation for American Art.

A Living Collection


This new display of the Museum’s collection tells the story of The Dorsky from a variety of perspectives, making space for traditionally marginalized voices. Exhibiting collection highlights and audience favorites alongside new acquisitions and commissions, A Living Collection presents the collection as a living entity, continuously evolving and shaped by the viewer's interpretation. 

A Museum Alive with Creativity!
