Meet at the special exhibition entrance for a guided of A New American Sculpture, 1914–1945: Lachaise, Laurent, Nadelman, and Zorach.

Assembled from public and private collections, this exhibition of approximately 55 sculptures and 20 drawings addresses the remarkable affinities between the work of four divergent and competitive personalities, who redefined sculpture's expressive potential during the turbulent interbellum period.
