Many art museums throughout historical past have been designed with a cultural objective or been subject to political intervention. In explicit, national art galleries have been thought to incite emotions of nationalism. This has occurred in each democratic and non-democratic countries, although authoritarian regimes have traditionally exercised extra control over administration of art museums. Ludwig Justi was for example dismissed as director of the Alte Nationalgalerie in Berlin in 1933 by the brand new Nazi authorities for not being politically appropriate. Gender bias is less overt at present, but contemporary women artists still face many obstacles and disparities, in addition to persistent underrepresentation in museum collections and exhibitions worldwide. Their historical precursors still need to have their stories told.
Each portray and sculpture on view shares a narrative concerning the American West from a unique perspective. Artists are the storytellers, and their backgrounds, lived experiences, and prevailing cultural attitudes formed their work. More than 300 paintings and sculptures are on view within the Whitney Western Art Museum and the Grainger Gallery. Additional artistic endeavors can be found all through the museum and gardens, and others are quickly stored.
