This exhibition is now closed.
High Art: A Decade of Collecting presented 50 works acquired by the Smithsonian’s National Air and Space Museum from 2003 to 2013.
They covered a range of styles from realism, commercial advertisement, surrealism, and impressionism to abstraction. The works were divided into three sections: "Visions of Flight" (conceptual works), "Faces of Flight" (portraits), and "Looking Back" (works related to historical events). The Museum's art program actively collects works from contemporary artists and art donors for its world-renowned, 7,000-piece aerospace-themed art collection.
Graduate students from The George Washington University's Advanced Exhibit Design class in the Museum Studies Program assisted with the design of the exhibition.
