NAC MODERN: Contemporary Masters in The National Arts Club’s Permanent Collection
September 8 - 26

The beautifully presented and preserved works of art by National Arts Club Life Artist Members that decorate the public rooms of the Club represent only a fraction of the Permanent Collection. A recent reorganization of the Collection has revealed a modest yet strong and unique nucleus of modernist works dating from the 1950s to the present within the Club’s holdings.
