Five Artists After Philip Guston

Revel in the creative efforts of Adrian Arleo (Missoula, Mont.), John Buck (Bozeman, Mont.), Richard Notkin (Vaughn, Wash.), Jaune Quick-to-See Smith (Corrales, N.M.), and Jay Schmidt (Bozeman, Mont.) who created artworks in response to the political and racial content found in Philip Guston (1913–1980)’s iconic Cigar, 1969. Cigar has been on view since May 2018, allowing artists to deeply reflect on Guston’s artistic legacy. These artists evoke, investigate, and expand upon the continuing power of Guston’s work as a touchstone for contemporary and American art. MAM is grateful to Art Bridges for making this groundbreaking exhibition and programming possible and is proud to be acknowledged for being among the top institutions participating in the Art Bridges Foundation lending program. The exhibition was available to travel through 2021.
