New On View: Modern and Contemporary Art celebrates the recent reinstallation of Joslyn's modern and contemporary art collection, featuring two new acquisitions:

An important mixed-media painting by American artist Frank Stella (b. Malden, MA, 1936), Nogaro (1982) is a gift of the Phillip Schrager Collection of Contemporary Art from Terri, Harley, and Beth Schrager. The lively, three-dimensional painting is the first major work by Stella to enter Joslyn's collection and is considered a highlight of the modern and contemporary reinstallation.

Frank Stella (American, b. 1936), Nogaro, 1982, from the Circuit series (2nd version), mixed media on aluminum, 115 x 120x 24 inches, Gift of the Phillip Schrager Collection of Contemporary Art from Terri, Harley and Beth Schrager, 2014.2.

Jennifer Steinkamp's mesmerizing digital projection, Judy Crook, 2 (2013), is on view for the first time. In this stunning animation, a tree sways elegantly as its leaves gradually shift from the vibrant greens of springtime to the warm hues of autumn before finally being shed, leaving its branches barren. The cycle begins again and tree buds new leaves.
