Come to Colorado & The World Outside: Louise Nevelson at Midcentury

Amon Carter Museum of American Art. 3501 Camp Bowie Blvd., Fort Worth, 817-738-1933, cartermuseum.org

The “Come to Colorado” exhibit pulls from the Amon Carter’s Fred and Jo Mazzulla Collection, which features 19th-century photographs from W. J. Carpenter, Joseph M. Collier and William Henry Jackson. The visuals showcase the history of Colorado, documenting the settlement and promotion of the area as an outdoor playground while the mining industry took off in the late 19th century. “The World Outside: Louise Nevelson at Midcentury” focuses on Nevelson’s midcentury sculptures and works on paper. The 50 works in the Carter’s exhibit will be on view together for the first time in thematic sections that explore Nevelson’s identity and significance as an artist of her time.

Colorado & Nevelson — through Jan. 7, 2024
