This week’s Friday exhibition is “George Bellows and New York, 1900-1930″ at the Toledo Museum of Art. The show, which takes Toledo’s Bellows as its starting point and surrounds it with other artists’ takes on early 20th-century New York, is on view through April 21. It was selected by art history students at the University of Michigan and was timed to coincide with the ongoing George Bellows retrospective, which is now at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
