ART HISTORY: Armory Show

Armory Show button, 1913

The 1913 International Exhibition of Modern Art that was organized by the Association of American Painters and Sculptors, the first large exhibition of modern art in America. The exhibition ran in New York City's 69th Regiment Armory (that's why we call it the Armory Show), from February 17 until March 15, 1913. The show introduced astonished America to the experimental styles of the European vanguard, including Fauvism, Cubism, and Futurism.

It's been 100 years since this show.
