Plains Art Museum Presents From Renoir to Kostabi 

Press Release
For Immediate Release (August 2020)

Fargo, North Dakota – Plains Art Museum is thrilled to announce upcoming exhibition, From Renoir to Kostabi from Saturday, August 15, 2020 through October 16, 2020 in both the Jane L. Stern and Anna Jane Schlossman galleries.Originally slated for exhibition at The State Russian Museum in Saint Petersburg, Russia and canceled due to Covid-related travel issues, the Museum welcomes the powerfully delightful exhibition.

Organized by the Park West Museum and with support from Carole Sorell Inc., the monumental Renoir to Kostabi exhibition chronologically and poetically portrays the evolution of Modernism through select works from the Park West Museum (Southfield, MI). The journey begins with works by some of the most notable artists of the 19th and 20th centuries: Pierre Auguste Renoir, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, Pablo Picasso and Marc Chagall. The evolution continues with Modernist landscapes by French painter Marcel Mouly, and ends with Post-Modern works by American artist Mark Kostabi.

This major exhibition of 219 prints, original paintings, drawings, and sculptures by European, Russian and American artists calls attention to some of the leading European and American art movements of the past 150 years. Curated chronologically by artist and hung salon-style, it travels us through figure, floral, and landscape subject matter, purveying dynamic life, light and color.

Plains Art Museum is the largest and only AAM-accredited art museum in North Dakota. It is your nonprofit art museum and education center, supported by over 800 individuals and organizations. The Museum and its Katherine Kilbourne Burgum Center for Creativity is located at 704 First Avenue North in downtown Fargo.
