Event Description

American painters of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries depicted complex visions of American life, culture and identity. The paintings included in this exhibit, made between 1850 and 1940, offer unique views of the world and the subjects that inspired their makers. Through these works, it is possible to see the evolution of the United States from a young republic to a modern nation. Their subjects range from the iconic, such as majestic views of the natural world, to the unexpected, as seen in the ticket stubs and newspapers, meticulously rendered in realistic detail. This exhibit organized by the Detroit Institute of Arts is drawn from the Manoogian Collection. These works will invite visitors to explore seemingly simple scenes of American life and uncover artists’ complex questions about American culture and identity. Reminder that the Bonifas Arts Center’s galleries are open free to the public, in part to the sponsorship of the City of Escanaba and Bonifas memberships.
