About the Exhibition

Modern Spirit: The Art of George Morrison surveys the prolific career of George Morrison (1919–2000), a distinctive and well-loved artist whose works bring together concepts of abstraction, landscape, and spiritual reflection and draw from his physical and spiritual homelands—speaking to both American urban settings and to the solitude of Northern Minnesota. The exhibition features approximately 80 drawings, paintings, prints, and sculptures by this important 20th-century artist. Half of the 80 works in the exhibition issue from the largest and most important collection of Morrison’s artwork in the country, the Minnesota Museum of American Art in St. Paul, Minnesota. The other 40 stem from important public and private collections from across the country. MORE>
