Artists Charles Demuth and Charles Sheeler share much more than a first name and birth year.  Contemporaries, both were born in Pennsylvania; the center of  American steel production in the 19th and 20th centuries.  It was Pennsylvania steel that built the Empire State Building, the gates of the Panama Canal,  railroads, and heavy machinery of this dynamic era.
 
The works in this exhibition are reminders of a time when America took pride in and celebrated its accomplishments as the builder of the modern age. Mass production was the engine of progress.
 
 
This exhibition is purely for FAIR USE EDUCATIONAL PURPOSES ONLY.
DONATIONS ARE WELCOME
