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.
This summer, the Bowdoin College Museum of Art is proud to partner with the Bowdoin International Musical Festival in presenting a pair of concerts of musical nocturnes amidst their visual counterparts on July 2nd and July 23rd.
"Night Vision: Nocturnes in American Art, 1860-1960" proposes central importance of nocturnal images in the rise of American modernism, featuring 90 works by leading artists, including Ansel Adams, Charles Burchfield, Winslow Homer, Lee Krasner, Georgia O’Keeffe, Albert Ryder, John Sloan, Edward Steichen, and Andrew Wyeth
The Bowdoin College Museum of Art's summer exhibition, Night Vision: Nocturnes in American Art, 1860-1960, with works by Winslow Homer, Edward Hopper, Georgia O'Keeffe and Andrew Wyeth, has attracted the attention of The Wall Street Journal, which provides an overview that includes an interview with Museum of Art Curator Joachim Homann.
