A World of Strangers: Crowds in American Art 

Oct. 17, 2015-April 4, 2016

Huntington Art Gallery

Crowds are the temporary groups that strangers form at baseball games, parades, riots, and on city streets. Fickle and ephemeral, crowds can be joyous, destructive, or somber. As this focused loan exhibition of about 20 works shows, artists have represented groups of people as patterns of dots, murky silhouettes, and teeming, river-like currents of cars and machinery.
