Dreams and Memories
Dreams and Memories, an exploration of historic and contemporary art from the Museum’s permanent collection, considers these themes as drivers of artistic creativity and expressions of powerful forces in American society.
Dreams and memories both manifest and generate ideas, perhaps no more powerfully than in art. Through works by such artists as Edmund Greacen, Mary Knollenberg, Willard Metcalf, Charles Ethan Porter, Winfred Rembert, and Bessie Potter Vonnoh, the exhibition explores these ideas through themes such as reverie, surrealism, identity formation, religion, social action, historical memory, and the American dream.
