Associated American Artists (AAA) was begun in the 1930s by Reeves Lewenthal, who realized the huge potential in marketing affordable art to America’s large middle class. AAA was a hugely successful commercial enterprise that popularized American prints for six decades. Producing work from some of America’s best-known artists such as Grant Wood and John Steuart Curry and lesser-known luminaries like Luigi Lucioni, AAA prints were marketed as both educational and patriotic – “art for the people.” The CRMA has an extensive collection of AAA prints and this exhibition explores some of the common themes created by AAA artists.
