Art Galleries and Exhibits


When: Feb. 1-April 21 2013

Works of art can lead a double life. Often, one side is revealed to the public while the other—the back—remains hidden from view. In Backstories: The Other Side of Art, these hidden sides come to light as a selection of works tell their little-known "backstories," revealing how they were made, how they have been cared for by collectors, the many changes they have survived, or the period during which they were created. The exhibition spans five centuries and includes paintings, works on paper, sculpture, silver, and porcelain
