Our friends at report that the exhibition includes more that 60 paintings, drawings and photographs by such artists as Edward Hopper,  Andrew Wythe, whose painting “Christina’s World” is one of the most familiar works of the 20th century, as well as two by Man Ray, a modernist that ArtNews has called one of the 25 most influential artists of the 20th century.

“Real/Surreal” is complemented by an exhibition of work by Salvador Dali. “Twelve Tribes of Israel” features 12 prints in a series by the Spanish Surrealist, offering a comparison of the American artists’ work with that of one of the best-known of the European Surrealists.

Special admission: $12 adults, $11 seniors/students, $5 ages 6-17, free for children age 5 and younger. On Tuesdays afternoons, admission for everyone ages 6 and older is $4 from 1-5 p.m. On Friday evenings, admission is $5 after 5 p.m. for “Fridays at GRAM.”
