This show includes artwork by eighteen Americans, including my favorite Alexander Calder—a little wooden hourglass form with hairlike shapes wired to it. One of the best depictions of a male nipple ever, in Marsden Hartley’s portrait of a shirtless heavyweight boxer, makes me happy that this museum’s curators work so tirelessly at digging often and deep into their permanent collection.
