The American Eye: Symposium Exploring and Celebrating American Art 9/20/14 - 9/20/14
American paintings were the last collection assembled by Shelburne Museum founder Electra Havemeyer Webb (1888-1960) in the late 1950s. Relying on her own keen eye and assisted by leading figures in museums and galleries, Mrs. Webb purchased works by Copley, Cole, Durand, Homer, Prior, Heade, Bierstadt, Lane, Johnson, Cassatt, Grandma Moses, and Andrew Wyeth, among many others. In the years following her death, the collection grew to number over 1,000 works. Shelburne Museum is the only museum in our region to hold American paintings, with particular strengths in New England landscapes and portraiture. In May 2014 the museum reopened its Webb Gallery after months of renovation with Painting a Nation: American Art at Shelburne Museum to explore the creation of this canonical gathering of paintings within an institution better known as a center of American folk art. The American Eye will focus attention on American artists, their artistic inspirations and the importance of American art in the shaping of a national identity. Noted scholars participating in the day’s discussions and gallery tours include museum director Tom Denenberg, independent art historian Marc Simpson, Carol Troyen, the Kristin and Roger Servison Curator Emerita of American Paitings at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, and Ellery Foutch, assistant professor of American Studies at Middlebury College. A limited number of symposium scholarships are available.
