Jane Chu, the chairman of the National Endowment for the Arts, has been touring the country to see firsthand how art intersects with and supports community life. Chu included in her travels around Maine a stop at the Bowdoin College Museum of Art.
The Bowdoin College Museum of Art exhibition Night Vision: Nocturnes in American Art, 1860-1960, the first major museum survey dedicated to scenes of the night in American art from 1860 to 1960, has earned rave reviews and mentions in local and national publications.
This summer’s major exhibition, Night Vision: Nocturnes in American Art, 1860-1960, makes apparent that many artists of the past were drawn to the dark. Michel Auder’s recent video installation in the Museum’s media gallery confirms that the night continues to be an inspiration to this day.
