This summer the Benton returns to a popular practice of presenting mini-exhibitions from its permanent collections of works from the 16th to the 21st centuries. The familiar and the not-so-familiar will be hung in a variety of theme-related groupings beside new acquisitions, many that have never been exhibited before. Highlights will include 17th-century Italian drawings, paintings and pastels by American artists Dwight Tryon, Maurice Prendergast and Mary Cassatt, a selection of photographic portraits by Malian photographer Seydou Keita, Pop Art-inspired prints by German artists working in the 1960s, and a selection of contemporary photography.
