“The Ashcan School and Their Circle,” a lecture by Elizabeth Peterson, Director of OUMA and curator of the Ashcan exhibition

Ashcan artists worked in the early years of the 20th century and were named for the gritty scenes of everyday life in New York City and the metropolitan area that they depicted. These images of daily toil were the product of a loosely affiliated group of artists including John Sloan, George Luks, Robert Henri, Ernest Lawson, Reginald Marsh, George Bellows and several others, all of whom were interested in modern life, often in the city’s poorest neighborhoods.

Most of the works of art on view are on loan from three private collections within the Atlanta metro area. Also on view are loans from the High Museum of Art, Atlanta, and The Museum of Modern Art, New York.
