State of the Arts: Art Comes of Age in America

Season 41 Episode 4 | 26m 46s | Video has closed captioning.

In the early 20th century, American painters, dancers, and playwrights experimented with the new styles they'd learned in Europe. State of the Arts takes a look back at New Jersey's early Impressionists and at the new modernist art in the 1913 Armory Show. Plus two American classics that continue to inspire today: Thornton Wilder’s Our Town and Martha Graham’s Appalachian Spring.
