The Pursuit of Freedom

Visit Chicago, Pittsburgh, Philadelphia and New York, where 20th century American Modernism produced art and architecture that shaped the world.

As the 19th century passed into history, America refashioned itself from a wild frontier into an industrial and artistic powerhouse in its growing cities. In Chicago, explore some of the great works of American Modernist painting at the Art Institute and visit homes designed by Frank Lloyd Wright and Mies van der Rohe. In Pittsburgh, visit Clayton Mansion and the Frick Museum, and delve into the collections of the Rodin Museum and Barnes Foundation in Philadelphia. In New York, enjoy a private tour of the Museum of Modern Art and take the rare opportunity to visit Dia:Beacon, which houses a unique collection of American Minimalism and Land Art.
