William Kloss Talk
Modern American Realism: The Sara Roby Foundation Collection
Friday, March 7, 2014, 6pm
Though presented under the title Modern American Realism, much of the art in the Sara Roby Foundation Collection struggles against the descriptive term, realism. Art historian William Kloss returns to the museum to examine the classification of this great gift of twentieth-century art. Arguing that many of the pieces confound classification, he instead coins a new term, “RobyReal,” to describe them.
