Explore the diversity of the immigrant experience as shown in the interwar sculpture of Gaston Lachaise, Robert Laurent, Elie Nadelman, and William Zorach. Study the vibrancy of dance and performance culture in interwar America on display not only in the subjects chosen, but in the sculptures themselves.
