32 Degrees: The Art of Winter
Jan 23 - May 30View Gallery
32 Degrees: The Art of Winter features winter inspired works of art in an array of mediums, from the late-nineteenth century to present day. Artworks ranging from Claude Monet’s Grainstacks, to contemporary photography, sound pieces, digital art, games and ephemeral sculptures will be located both inside the gallery space and on the Museum grounds.
This multifaceted, interactive exhibition provides visitors with the opportunity to explore and experience the complexities of snow and ice. The exhibit embraces the dialogue between fine art, decorative art, and digital art, challenging visitors to rethink their perceptions of the seemingly simple matters. Curator Carolyn Bauer actively sought out international and contemporary artists while digging deep into the rich collections of Shelburne Museum to explore the themes of aesthetics, ephemerality, nostalgia, and climate change.
