The American avant-garde flourished during the Cold War era, the period that saw the introduction of Jackson Pollock's iconoclastic drip paintings, the musical stylings of Miles Davis, and Charles and Ray Eames's modern furniture designs. On view through June 17th at Wellesley College's Davis Museum and Cultural Center, Cold War Modern: The Domesticated Avant-Garde, explores the production, commodification, and popularization of art, music, and design between 1945 and the early 1960s.
