A More Perfect Union

American Artists and the Currents of Our Time

Closed October 1, 2023

In celebration of its 60th anniversary, the U.S. Department of State’s Office of Art in Embassies’ traveling exhibition, A More Perfect Union: American Artists and the Currents of Our Time, was on view at the National Museum of American History September 19–October 1, 2023. This was the final leg of the tour for the traveling exhibition, a part of the office’s Democracy Collection initiative, which puts artists central to the defense of democracy. The exhibition includes works by some of the most respected contemporary artists in America. The works have been carefully selected to reflect the pride and innovation of America’s cultural sector, and to make cross cultural connections in the regions and states in which they are displayed.
