Seeing the City: Sloan's New York

Planning for a traveling exhibition, a catalog, and related educational and public programs exploring the New York art of John Sloan (1871-1951).

A $40,000 NEH Planning Grant will support the organization and interpretation of an exhibition and related catalogue focusing on works by John Sloan (1871-1951), an American realist painter and illustrator best known for his scenes of life in New York City. Entitled "Seeing the City: Sloan's New York," the exhibition will open at the Delaware Art Museum and then travel to two or three additional venues. By bringing together a wealth of media from a broad range of dates (1900-1946), "Seeing the City" will be the first major traveling exhibition to focus on Sloan's images of New York and the first since the 1970s to present significant new scholarship on the artist.
