Now’s the Time

Sheldon Museum of Art
through December 31, 2017

Now’s the Time riffs on bebop musician Charlie Parker’s 1945 tune of the same title to underscore
the influence of the New York School artists on the trajectory of post–World War II American art.

Featuring painting, photography, and sculpture made between the late 1930s through 1970,
Now’s the Time presents notable works from Sheldon's permanent collection by artists including
Helen Frankenthaler, Hans Hofmann, Lee Krasner, Norman Lewis, Barnett Newman, Mark Rothko,
David Smith, and Clyfford Still.

Mark Rothko's "Yellow Band"  

Clyfford Still, 1945’s “PH-794."

Lee Krasner’s “Invocation” from 1969-1971.
