Milwaukee Art Museum features work by Elizabeth Duffy (BF '12)
NEO comes from the Greek word neos, meaning “young” or “new.” As a prefix, “neo” appears in a wide variety of words, such as Neoclassicism, Neoconservatism, Neorealism, and even Neofuturism. These words acknowledge an origin, a past, while simultaneously transforming it into something new. In this gallery, gifted contemporary artists investigate the material, emotional, aesthetic, and intellectual links between past and present at the heart of NEO. In the NEO gallery at the Milwaukee Art Museum, the Chipstone Foundation features work by contemporary artists Jennifer Anderson, Elizabeth Duffy, Sarah Lindley, Beth Lipman, Thomas Loeser, Gord Peteran and Jim Rose, including several works of art commissioned for NEO.
