Curator Kimberly Orcutt guides this tour of the stunning new exhibition John Rogers: American Stories. In his lifetime, John Rogers sold over 80,000 works and earned the epithet “the people’s sculptor.” His plasters, known as “Rogers groups,” carried on a deeply rooted American genre tradition and embraced subjects from the Civil War to domestic life to popular theater and literary themes. Gallery tours are limited to 35 guests per tour. Please buy tickets in advance.
Kimberly Orcutt is Henry Luce Foundation Curator of American Art at the New-York Historical Society and curator of John Rogers: American Stories.
