When Modern Was Contemporary
Selections from the Roy R. Neuberger Collection
Recognizing the significance of the art of his own time, Financier Roy R. Neuberger acquired work by a remarkable selection of modern masters, including Alexander Calder, Stuart Davis, Willem de Kooning, Marsden Hartley, Jacob Lawrence, Georgia O’Keeffe, and Jackson Pollock. "When Modern Was Contemporary" illuminates the artistic transformations that took place in the U.S. during the first half of the twentieth century.
Art of Politics
Race, Identity in Works on Paper
Mansions, Motoring, and Millennials
Huning's Highland neighborhood has been impacted by the local economy and reflects drastic citywide changes. Historic exhibit photos document those changes primarily along Central Avenue. Huning's Highland was the first neighborhood platted after the Atlantic and Pacific Railroad, a subsidiary of the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railway, laid tracks to Albuquerque in 1880. Subdivision boundaries are the railroad tracks on the west, Martin Luther King Jr. Avenue on the north, the freeway 1-25 on the east, and Iron Avenue on the south. This exhibition will show the impact municipal development has on residential neighborhoods by focusing on the dramatic transformation that occurred in Franz Huning's Highland Addition neighborhood along Central Avenue from the late 19th century to present day.
