The Palm Springs Art Museum is a world class museum rivaling many large city art museums. The exhibition, Making it Modern, from May 20th to December 23rd, 2017, is a compelling view of artists that pushed modernism forward. Their collectors, who also had an impact in the area, are important to the exhibit. They include, Leonore and Walter Annenberg, Lionel Bauman, Joseph H. Hirshhorn, Raymond Loewy, Walter N. Marks, Seymour Oppenheimer, and Lucile and Ted Weiner.
These collectors were instrumental in fostering the artists in the exhibit. According to the Palm Springs Art Museum, six factors came into play in "Making it Modern." Line, energy, aggregates, biomorphism, spirituality, and presence defined what made modern art continue to mold the future of style.
Byron Browne Fugue 1956
The exhibit, covered ranges of periods with a wide variety of movements, from modernism to abstract expressionism. Many less known artists gives the audience a chance to learn about other important contributors to the field of painting and sculpture. Byron Browne, an obscure artist (featured above), is a painter who's works are a clear demonstration of a painting style free from constraints with boundless energy. Manuel Felguerez works displayed the biomorphism element the museum was seeking. His sculptures blended well with that of works by famed British sculptor Henry Moore.
