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.

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.
