Night Visions: American Art After Hours
October 21 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm$20
Nocturnal images have been central to the development of modern art. Leading American artists of many different aesthetic traditions, working in a range of media including painting, drawings, prints, sculpture, and photographs, were inspired by the unique challenges of picturing the night. Mysterious and provocative, the darkness was experienced as liberating, allowing artists to express personal truths in poetic ways. This presentation will demonstrate how visual artists, just like writers and musicians, have found the transformative power of the night a magical, compelling subject.
