The Big Deal: A Day At The Modern To See David Park: A Retrospective

by Gila Espinoza 12 Jun 2019 1:31 AM

Visit the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth to see David Park: A Retrospective. This is the first museum exhibition in more than 30 years to present the powerfully expressive work of David Park (1911-1960), best known as the founder of Bay Area Figurative Art. The exhibition traces the full arc of the artist’s career, from his early social realist and cubist-inspired efforts of the 1930s to his mature figurative paintings of the 1950s and his astounding final works on paper. Enter and win this Big Deal and you can make it an all-day affair at the Modern with admission for two to the museum and the exhibition, a beautifully illustrated exhibition catalog, and lunch for two at the stylish Café Modern. David Park: A Retrospective is on view now through September 22.

Two Bathers, David Park. 1958
