Staying Visible: Agnes Pelton

You Both Make the Desert FlowerThe Euphrat Museum of Art is proud of this collection by the pioneering modernist painter Agnes Pelton. They were donated by Cornelia and Irving Sussman, who were neighbors and friends of Pelton, and whose gift was inspired by "Staying Visible," a 1981 Euphrat exhibition and ongoing project to highlight the importance of archival material associated with underrecognized artists. In the years since, the artist has gained significant recognition, including a 2019-2021 traveling exhibit and book, "Agnes Pelton, Desert Transcendentalist," which was featured at venues including the Phoenix Art Museum and the Whitney Museum in New York City.
