American Moderns, 1910-1960: From O’Keeffe to Rockwell opens June 14 through September 8 at the Ringling Museum of Art. Fifty-seven works by American artists from the collection of the Brooklyn Museum will be showcased.

Witness to War is an exhibition of photographs from The Ringling Museum’s permanent collection and the Institute on World War II and the Human Experience at Florida State University.  It honors U.S. veterans through a gripping visual account of WWII via the lenses of soldier-photographers who documented their first-hand experiences at war.  Comprised of snapshots, candid portraits, and pictures documenting action on the front lines, the photographs from these personal collections gifted by veterans offer us a unique historical perspective of WWII from individual servicemen, a perspective not always in step with officially sanctioned press photographs from the era, or the more iconic World War II photographs that have come to symbolize the War in the public’s consciousness.
