Land-Grant Landscapes: Pre-1950 American Landscapes

Sunday, October 26, 2014
1:00pm – 4:30pm

Repeats weekly on Sunday and Saturday until 12/14/2014.

Storrs Campus
William Benton Museum of Art

As the State Museum of Connecticut located on the campus of one of the first land-grant universities to be established by the Morrill Act of 1862, the Benton is uniquely situated to present an exhibition that explores the symbolic power of land’s representation. The works on view consider changing ideologies of land ownership and land function in America during the era of industrialization and urbanization. Included in the exhibition are paintings by artists of the Hudson River School, American Impressionism, and the Ashcan School.

Pictured here is Ernest Lawson's Low Tide.
