Friends from Wells Fargo and The Mint Museum gathered at the George F. Baker House on Wednesday, March 4 to kick off the 26th Armory Show. The night was a joyous celebration and featured the unveiling of a work recently obtained by The Mint Museum with Wells Fargo’s support. Summer Wheat‘s With Side With Shoulder was dramatically revealed to the guests by Mint CEO and President Todd Herman and Mint Chief Curator Jen Sudul Edwards, as they pulled away a silk drape to reveal a colorful, textured painting on aluminum mesh. Wheat’s 2019 painting stood out from the collection of classical landscapes and portraits already on display in the Baker House, which made for great conversation. Visit The Mint Museum to see this amazing work in person soon!
