Off the Wall: American Art to Wear at Philadelphia Museum of Art

Delight in the astonishing inventiveness and techniques of a generation of mixed-media artists who pioneered a new art form designed around the body. Coming of age during the dramatic cultural shifts of the 1960s and 70s, the artists in this distinctively American movement explored nontraditional materials and methods to create adventurous, deeply imaginative works.
