Tales: American Images and Icons,
1800-2000 is a collection of
objects from fine art and popular
culture that demonstrate the varied
ways in which the image of the horse
has infused American culture.

Frederic Remington and Currier and
Ives. Among the twentieth-century
painters, sculptors, and photographers
are Thomas Hart Benton, Mary Frank,
Elie Nadelman, Eadweard Muybridge,
Alfred Stieglitz, Edward Steichen,
Andy Warhol, and Susan Rothenberg.
There are also installations and
montages by contemporary artists.

discussion moderated by Charlotta
Kotik, Curator of Contemporary Art at
the Brooklyn Museum of Art, will
investigate how three contemporary

history, will place the art of Horse
Tales in a larger context.
