American Made: Painting and Sculpture from the DeMell Jacobsen Collection

 Mint Museum Uptown
September 10-December 24, 2022

The DeMell Jacobsen Collection is one of the finest privately held collections of American art in the United States. Although works from the collection can be found on loan to museums across the country, this exhibition marks the first time works from the collection have been brought together to be viewed together in one exhibition. American Made will include more than 100 highlights of the foundation’s paintings and sculptures.

The exhibition will feature approximately 100 paintings and eight sculptures presented in thematic sections that showcase American art with a focus on painting from the late 18th century through the mid-20th century. Featured artists include Benjamin West, Sarah Miriam Peale, Thomas Cole, John Singer Sargent, Mary Cassatt, Charles Ethan Porter, Robert Henri, Loïs Maillou Jones, and Charles Alston. Viewers will experience everything from precise academic realism to impressionism, cubism, and abstraction through portraiture, still life, landscip

American Made was curated by Todd Herman, PhD, president and CEO of The Mint Museum; Kevin Sharp, director of the Dixon Gallery and Gardens; and Jonathan Stuhlman, PhD, senior curator of American art at The Mint Museum.
