A Celebration of the Body: Selections from the Permanent Collection

Exhibition In the Sullivan Gallery

October 22, 2021 - January 16, 2022

The human figure has always been a favorite subject in art, and A Celebration of the Body is a showcase of the tradition from SAMA’s permanent collection. In art, a figure study is a drawing or painting of the human body made in preparation for a more composed work of art. The human body is a wonderful subject in terms of studying muscles, movement and anatomy. This exhibition celebrates the tradition of rendering the body, a work of art itself, through various forms of artistic medium.
