DECADES: Looking Back/Moving Forward 1940 – 1959 Opening Reception

As we march toward MMofA’s sixtieth anniversary in October, we are pleased to present the final chapter of DECADES: Looking Back, Moving Forward. This popular and innovative series of exhibitions has immersed our visitors in the art, history, and creativity of the decades leading up to the 1960s. We scheduled this trip through time in experiential exhibitions of two decades each, and the last, 1940 – 1959.

This DECADES installation, as well as the two that preceded it (all leading up to the extravaganza of the 60th anniversary!), will recreate what it was like to be alive then, not only experiencing political and historical events, but navigating the personal lives of work, home, family, and leisure as well.
