CONNECTIONS GALLERY
Armando Rascon is the final artist whose work will be displayed in the inaugural year of the new de Young’s Connections Gallery program. Exhibitions in this gallery emphasize the more intuitive connections on which artists typically rely and provide a model for visitors of the kinds of relationships that emerge when the collections are viewed with an eye toward common elements.

Charles Sheeler: Across Media

February 10, 2007May 6, 2007

Charles Sheeler: Across Media is the first exhibition to focus exclusively on the complex, often paradoxical, relationships between photography, film, drawing, printmaking, and painting that were central to Sheeler's art. The exhibition features approximately 50 works and is accompanied by a fully illustrated catalogue featuring three essays: a brief introductory overview of the Sheeler literature, a detailed analysis of the artist's mediums and working methods, and a discussion of how those findings suggest new approaches to interpreting Sheeler's work.
