When: Sat., April 22, 4-6 p.m. 2017
Perhaps the process of assembling a 21st century installation art piece and a 19th century panoramic landscape painting share more than we realize. Join Caroline O’Connell from the Drawings, Prints & Graphic Design Department at the Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum for a close reading of Frederic Church’s trips to Maine in the 1850s as illustrative of the common ground. O’Connell will show work from storage at the Cooper Hewitt and share interesting facts about the Hewitt sisters’ acquisition of over 2,000 works by Church in 1917. Illustrated lecture followed by Q&A and an abridged tour of the main house.
