Art can express love, understanding, pain, joy, anger, frustration; it can change minds, hearts, bodies and move souls! We launched Boos Knows to that end in March 2019. Since then, we published over 60 essays and interviews, accessible to all, and featuring some of the leading voices of our field. But more importantly, we heard from you. From all corners of the country, you shared your thoughts, feedback, and all the interesting connections you were drawing from the works the Gallery presented. Encouraged by your response, we’re now pleased to offer our first online exhibition, exploring the work of two of America’s great 20th century modernists, Jacob Lawrence and Charles Sheeler, and featuring two masterpieces available through our Gallery. Please join us for this virtual dialogue, available below from June 22 to July 15, 2020. [More]
