Dwight and Sue Emanuelson have generously given artworks to the CMA for 35 years, and this sweeping four-gallery exhibition celebrates the couple’s ardent engagement with art and artists. Highlights include Abstract Expressionism, Pop Art, and midcentury design, with examples by Pierre Cardin and Charles and Ray Eames. This is a unique collection of modern and contemporary art, assembled through the lens of one couple’s life together and response to art.
