Larry Poons (American, b. 1937), Needles, 1972. Mixed media on canvas. Gift of Walter P. Chrysler, Jr.

The Chrysler continues to shake up the –isms of art history with this new exhibition of contemporary art. The threads between society, culture, and the visual arts are presented through a selection of works from the Chrysler vaults. This exhibition mixes contemporary classics with new acquisitions, and is grouped thematically. Visitors can follow the common chords of materials, portraits and figures—even the spaces found in nature—as they travel through a diverse range of artists and artworks. The exhibition is organized by Amy Brandt, Amy Brandt, Ph.D., the Chrysler’s McKinnon Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art.

The Museum is located at 245 West Olney Road in Norfolk, and the Chrysler Museum Glass Studio is located across the street. Both are open Wednesdays, 10 a.m.-9 p.m.; Thursdays-Saturdays, 10 a.m.-5 p.m., and Sundays, noon-5 p.m. The Chrysler and the Glass Studio are closed on Mondays and Tuesdays, as well as major holidays. Admission to the Museum’s collection and Studio’s glassblowing demonstrations are free. For exhibitions, programming and special events, visit chrysler.org or call 757-664-6200.
