Salon de Fleurus Exhibition

The John J McDonough Museum of Art on the campus of Youngstown State University opens the fall season with the Salon de Fleurus. The exhibition, along with Kelli Connell/Double Life: Fifteen Years, is one of two exciting shows that will be on display in the galleries September 8-November 3. An opening reception for both will take place on Friday, September 8 from 5-7pm. The Salon de Fleurus is an artwork, a contemporary reconstruction of Gertrude Stein's Parisian salon that existed at 27 rue de Fleurus from 1904-34. It was in Stein's salon that paintings by Cezanne, Matisse and Picasso were seen exhibited together for the first time both by her peers and transatlantic art experts who spread the word back home, eventually creating the American narrative of European modern art familiar today.
