Join in the celebration of the opening of a major exhibition “Night Vision: Nocturnes in American Art, 1860-1960” at the Bowdoin College Museum of Art. Spanning a century from the introduction of electric light to the dawn of the Space Age, this major survey of American night scenes by artists such as Winslow Homer, Georgia O’Keeffe, Andrew Wyeth, and Joseph Cornell proposes the central importance of nocturnal images in the development of modern art. Leading American artists cherished the night as a time of heightened alertness and active imagination. They responded in a range of media, including paintings, drawings, prints, and photographs, to the unique challenges of picturing the night.
Refreshments and children’s activities. Free and open to the public.
