Thomas Cole Historic Site - America’s Eden: Thomas Cole and "The Voyage of Life"
The 8th Annual Raymond Beecher Lecture at the Thomas Cole Historic Site entitled: America’s Eden: Thomas Cole and 'The Voyage of Life will take place this Sunday afternoon at 2PM.
Dr. Paul Schweizer, Museum Director Emeritus of the Munson-Williams-Proctor Arts Institute (MWPAI) in Utica, will share new findings about one of Thomas Cole’s most iconic series.
The talk heralds the occasion of this iconic series embarking on a new national tour in the exhibition, America’s Eden: Thomas Cole and "The Voyage of Life". The exhibition, curated by Schweizer, who also wrote the new exhibition catalogue on the series, will open at the Taft Museum of Art in Cincinnati in June 2014, exactly 175 years since Cole first began the paintings. We welcome Paul Schweizer and Betsy Jacks, Executive Director at the Thomas Cole National Historic Site in Catskill.
