This exhibition brings together more than 20 paintings from the Westmoreland’s collection of late 19th and early 20th century scenes of industry. Featured works capture the transformation of the American landscape from an agrarian society to an industrial one, interpreted in the work of both Pennsylvania and national artists celebrating industry as their subject. The Westmoreland Museum of American Art is the largest repository of southwestern Pennsylvania art in the country and the share this exhibition with the hope of developing a new appreciation not just for the art of Pennsylvania, but other geographic regions as well.
