Sedona’s Deep Connection to Modern Art
April 5, 2019 4 – 5 pm
Join Mark Rownd for a look into Sedona’s rich artistic history. As a collector of Max Ernst and other surrealists that visited Sedona in the early days of modern art, Mark has done extensive research into the time period, even discovering a new Max Ernst artwork in the area. Sedona holds a significant but little known place in the history of the modern art movement in America during the 20th century. During the 1940’s and 50’s key figures who influenced the formation of the modern art movement in New York traveled to Sedona to live and create art here. Much of the art created in Sedona during that time period now resides in museums around the U.S and the world, and is still actively being showcased in important historical exhibitions to this day, including an exhibit currently on view at the Tate museum in London, and an exhibition last year at the Museum of Modern Art in NY. Select works from Mark’s collection will be on view.
