Armory Show 100 Years
Nicknamed the Armory Show, the exhibition was lauded as one of the most influential events in the history of American art. It was inspired by previous large independent art exhibitions in France, Germany, Italy, and England.
The Show was home to approximately 1250 paintings, sculptures, and decorative works by over 300 European and American artists. There was a wave of modernism after the Armory Show, the first major showing of avant-garde works in the U.S.
