Hope is the Thing with Feathers: Art of the Natural World
April 11 - July 31
From a mummy case for a falcon, 1085-332 BC, to Andy Warhol’s Flowers, 1964, artists and artisans have engaged with nature over millennia, drawing inspiration from the known world. Curated by Louise Weinberg in collaboration with the Godwin-Ternbach Museum, the exhibitionhighlights over 130 objects spanning a range of cultures from Ancient Egyptian sculpture and Pre-Columbian textiles and ceramics, to 17th century Dutch landscapes, Japanese ukiyo-e prints, Surrealist paintings, to W.P.A. prints, and landscape photography of the 20th century. The exhibition and public programs form a platform in which to discuss the crisis facing our environment today and for generations to come, and how we must alter our point of view to embrace new global solutions and personal patterns of behavior.
